Hi this is Lauden Vergara, and I am with ABC Bartending Schools here in Miami, Florida. In this clip we are going to show you how to make a cherry margarita. Well typically a margarita is just tequila, triple sec, which is a orange flavored liqueur, and sour mix, which is a concentrated lemon lime flavor. Very citrusy, but this is going to be a different variation. Let's start off with a mixing glass, about two thirds of the way with ice we are going to add obviously tequila. Cuervo at that point, because it gives it a nice flavor for your margarita. Tequila, and Jose Cuervo amazing. We are going to add some triple sec, which is an orange flavor liqueur. It is very light in alcohol, we are going to do about two counts of that. Then we have our cherry brandy. Cherry brandy you can find it at any liquor store. It is a very strong sweet flavor of cherry. You are going to want to add about two counts of that, and add some sour mix. this is the stuff I tell you that has that nice froth over to the top of your margarita. Very important for margaritas. Go ahead and put some of that in there. You want to give that a really good shake. Once you give that a really nice shake you can go ahead, and pour that into your glass. Look how refreshing that looks. That is amazing. Then you want to garnish it maybe with a cherry and a lime, and you have your cherry margarita. Now this flavor is very sweet. In Miami you have the look, you need the spice, and this drink right here is definitely a spicy-looking drink. What do you think? Very sweet for the taste, enjoy yourselves, and enjoy your cherry margaritas. This is Lauden, thank you for watching.
