My friends over at Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur — one of my favorite little independent distillers, and not just because I’m obsessed with all things ginger — asked me to help get the word out about their INTENSE Gingerita cocktail competition. I was like, “Duh. Yes! But could you pretty please send me [yet another] bottle?” I mean, I go through this stuff like it’s water and to be honest, we were running low at The Boozy Bungalow, and I was getting antsy.
Anyway, they’re looking for creative recipes using Barrow’s and an agave spirit, and the contest runs through May 21. If you like booze swag and Instagram glory, you should head on over to their Instagram account to learn how to enter.
Since it would be totally unfair for me to win, I toned down the creativity on my own entry (you’re welcome), but my Triple Threat Gingerita it still really fucking good, and pretty damn easy. So even if you don’t enter, you should give this a try.
TRIPLE THREAT GINGERITA
1.5 ounces Barrow’s Intense Ginger Liqueur
1.5 ounces tequila
1.5 ounces fresh-squeezed lime juice
3 dashes Angostura orange bitters
Pinch sea salt
Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker or wide-mouth mason jar with a handful of ice. Shake the shit out of it and strain into a ridiculously gorgeous vintage margarita glass. Garnish with a slice of lime or candied ginger. Enjoy.
