Hi this is Lauden Vergara and I'm with ABC Bartending Schools here in Miami, Florida. In this clip we're going to show you how to make a Ginger Margarita. What is a Margarita? It typically is a Mexican drink made with Tequila, Triple Sec which is an orange flavored liqueur and sour mix which is a lemon lime very concentrate sour mix. It adds froth to your Margaritas and makes it look nice and refreshing. We're going to start off by getting a thin two-thirds of the way with ice, then we're going to pick up some Anejo Tequila which is one of the most popular Tequilas out there. They are doing great and one of my favorites to that. We are going to add about four seconds worth of Tequila in there. Then we're going to do a little upgrade from the Triple Sec than we normally use and use Quantro which is a French version of an orange liqueur. It is a little higher alcohol content. So you need to do about two seconds worth of that and then add your sour mix which is your concentrated lemon lime to give it a nice frosty look. Then since this is a Ginger Margarita you either can find the ginger syrup or you can add some ginger paste. Ginger is a root usually used in Asian cuisine and stuff like that. You don't want to add too much to it. So then you want to give it a good shake. While you are shaking what you want to do is get your maybe a little plate or something if you don't have a caddy and go ahead and mix your ground ginger and your salt together and then you're going to rim your glass with the salt and the ginger, ground ginger around your glass. Remember Margaritas need to be shaken very well. So you want to go ahead and rim your glass and pour in your Ginger Margarita. That's how you get it. This is Louden. Thank you very much for watching.
