What is it about summer that makes cocktails taste so much better? On a hot and humid summer evening, nothing hits the spot like an ice cold beverage. One of our favorite things to do lately is make a fun drink and bring it up to the rooftop of our building. Sipping a refreshing cocktail with a view of the city is what summer in NYC is all about! Our drink of choice the past few weeks has been this Ginger Golden Margarita. The bright color and tropical flavor make it the perfect refreshing summer cocktail.

The secret ingredient in this golden margarita is Alizé Passion. This premium liquer imported from France infuses vodka with passion fruit nectar – the passion fruit adds a beautiful color (hence the name Golden Margarita!) and the most delicious fruity flavor. I love the flavor of passion fruit but hate the mess of working with the fruit so this is my new solution to adding some tropical fruit flavor to my cocktails!

TheBetterHalf is actually the mixologist in our house. He loves experimenting with fancy cocktails, (under my watchful eye of course)! But sometimes instead of making jalepeno-ginger-strawberry simple syrup and squeezing 3 different types of citrus, it is nice to just open a botle, mix a few simple ingredients, and pour! And that is the real beauty of this Alizé – it is an easy way to dress up a cocktail.

This Ginger Golden Margarita blends the Alizé Passion with some tequila, fresh lime juice, agave, and grated fresh ginger.  So simple and so tasty.

But if you don’t even feel like squeezing lime or grating ginger, you can actually drink the Alizé Passion by itself over ice!  The fruity flavor with just a subtle alcohol kick is good enough to drink alone.   Talk about a REALLY easy drink, perfect for summer!

Cheers from NYC!

    I’ve been super obsessed with margaritas lately…there’s a restaurant where I live that does one with a chili salt rim and it’s amazing. I love ginger and the salty, spicy aspect of margaritas and this looks just delicious!

    What a gorgeous way to spend a summer evening in the city! And I’m sure the view makes the cocktails taste even better :) I love passionfruit (as you know) and I can’t wait to see if any of our stores stock this great passionfruit vodka. And my better half is the mixologist in our house too! I’ll have to pass this recipe along to him :)
