One of our favorite little “secrets” is visiting Dockside Margaritas at Disney Springs for their seasonal margaritas. For the holiday season you can say “Feliz Navidad” at Dockside Margaritas with a seasonal margarita. Our team enjoyed the waterside views as they sipped on this festive seasonal margarita.
The Feliz Navidad Margarita is a fairly simple recipe with Herradura Blanco Tequila, Crème de Cassis, and apple juice. The color is simply gorgeous thanks to the Crème de Cassis (which is a sweet liqueur made from black currants). The Blanco Tequila is very light, so combining that with the sweet Crème de Cassis and the apple juice, you’ve got a very sweet and light margarita.
Thankfully the chili salt rim adds a nice contrast and some mild heat. A lime wedge is added as a garnish, and our team recommends squeezing it in to add some tartness, and perhaps asking for a second one if you really want to cut back the sweet. Sipping on this beauty at Dockside Margaritas is a great way to stop and take a minute to enjoy the season in a relaxing outdoor venue.
For $15.00 this is a very good, fresh-made cocktail. It certainly beats the disaster that was the Peppermint Margarita last year. Yes, there are a few tiny ways 2020 is better than 2019 – we’ll take the small victory.
