Salted. Caramel. Margarita?

Salted Caramel Margarita

I’ve made my share of baked goodies with salted caramel as the star ingredient, including Salted Caramel & Pretzel Brownies or Bacon & Salted Caramel Brownies. But I’ve never had a salted caramel margarita. And since it’s National Margarita Day I think it’s about time!

My friends over at The Underground in Chicago’s River North neighborhood have kindly shared the recipe for one of their special margaritas: the Salted Caramel Margarita. The Underground was named “Hottest Club” by Entertainment Weekly and “Best in the U.S.” by Nightclub and Bar Magazine, in part because it attracts red-hot performers like Katy Perry, John Mayer, and Kanye West.

Salted Caramel Margarita


• 1.5 oz avion reposado
• 1 oz mariposa
• 1 oz lime
• 2 caps vanilla
• 1.5 oz salted caramel


Combine all ingredients in a shaker and shake well. Serve in a Pilsner glass and garnish with caramel salt.
