Agave Cocktail Series: Ensenada’s Spicy Margarita

Spicy Margarita by Jorsand Diaz, Beverage Director of Ensenada ( Brooklyn, NY) 

Created by Jorsand Diaz, Beverage Director of Ensenada, this  is a flavorful twist on the classic margarita. It combines the spice of Mexican hot peppers with fresh lime juice and agave.

Ensenada is a neighborhood mariscos and mezcal restaurant, celebrating contemporary Latin American coastal cuisine in the heart of Williamsburg. Led by partner and Executive Chef Luis Herrera (previously Cosme, Blanca) and owner Bryce David (who also owns Black Flamingo, which Ensenada sits above), Ensenada will highlight sustainably sourced seafood and an extensive range of rotating mezcales.

This series allows readers to go beyond the well-known recipes using agave, i.e., a combination of tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur. Break out the cocktail shaker and try these contemporary agave-based creations that come straight from the cocktail shakers of today’s top bartenders.
