Ignite your Easter Weekend with this Spiced Carrot Margarita

Easter weekend is approaching which means you soon may find yourself surrounded by in-laws, conversing about the weather, Donald Trump, and a recent sporting event that you don’t care about. Okay, maybe we’re projecting a bit here. Obviously, not all of you will be sucked into endless small talk this weekend, but regardless of whether you are seeking some relief or just trying to spice things up, we’ve got you covered with this Easter treat — a Spiced Carrot Margarita.

This spicy, savory take on a classic Margarita, is infused with the fresh, earthy flavors that are perfect for spring. We’ve found that natural sweetness of the carrots perfectly balances the chile-infused tequila and citrus. Oh, and you know its going to be hot because its topped with our spiciest sauce in stock: Small Axe Ghost Pepper Sauce!

1.5 oz chili-infused tequila

Small Axe Ghost Pepper Sauce is by far the spiciest hot sauce we have ever made! Still, that doesn’t mean we skimped on delicious flavor. The freshly ground chipotle powder in this hot sauce adds a smokiness which makes it a perfect addition well in any chile, pozole, gumbo, or any other slow cooked meal that needs a little extra spice!
