Taco-Spiced Margarita

(Not rated yet )

The southwestern taste of McCormick® Taco Seasoning gives this craft cocktail a welcome, unexpected flavor punch. Taco Seasoning is used in both the lime simple syrup and as a garnish on the glass rim. Serve it with your Taco Tuesday menu for a whole new twist on the sweet and salty margarita.

Recipe created by two-time "Chopped" champ, Chef James Briscione. He brings creativity to the table with bold flavors and spices in his new Food Network cooking show, "Man Crafted."
