Best Shamrockaritas Recipe - How To Make Shamrockaritas

Margarita lovers, rejoice! The Shamrockarita has arrived. Backed with tequila and limethen enriched with sour apple liqueur, this festive take on the classic cocktail will add the perfect flair to your St Patrick’s Day party.

A classic margarita is usually made with 3 parts tequila, 2 parts triple sec and 1 part lime juice. Here we swap out some of the triple sec for sour apple liqueur, which lends a refreshing tart note to the cocktail, as well as that gorgeous green hue.

Every festive cocktail needs a fun garnish, and these clover-shaped apple slices add the perfect touch. They’re super easy to make — just cut 1/4″ round slices of Granny Smith apple and use a 2″ shamrock cookie cutter to stamp out the shapes — but if you want to simplify, a plain half-moon apple slice will also work.
