Marlow’s Tavern Magaritas – Thanks to Marlow’s Tavern for treating my husband and I to fantastic drinks and snacks. More thanks to Atlanta Food Blogger’s Society for arranging this wonderful evening. All opinions are my own
Marlow’s Tavern has quite a few locations in the Metro Atlanta area as well as Florida. Find a location near you and grab one of these delicious margaritas…please drink responsibly.
Marlow’s Tavern makes very good margaritas and thanks to Marlow’s Taverns’s adult beverage director Rick Blumberg I know their secret. The keys to great margaritas are great tequila (of course) and house made sour mix.
Their BLOOD ORANGE MARGARITA is made with Herradura Resposado Tequila, Pur Blood Orange Spice Liqueur, Fresh Lemon and Clement Sirop de Canne. This was an absolutely delicious, dangerously drinkable creation.
The classic margarita, made with Altos Tequila Plata was a real treat. I’ve got some Altos in my home bar so I felt a sense of validation when I saw him bring this out. Altos Plata is light, fruity and blends well with natural citrus.
The house made sour mix is a thing of beauty. It starts with just citrus peels (no white pith please) and granulated sugar mixed and left to sit for 24 hours. After a day water is added and the peels are removed. Simple and delicious. I’ll definitely be making this at home.Add some tequila and your favorite juice and you’ve got one terrific margarita.
Four lemons and five limes should do the trick. Add a cup of sugar and let it sit…well, you should shake it up a bit!
We snacked on my favorite appetizers from Marlow’s J.T.’S KETTLE CHIPS- Crispy Potato Chips Crowned with Gorgonzola Cheese, Bacon, Roma Tomato and Scallion\
SHRIMP & CRAB NACHO’s -sauteed Shrimp, Crab, Pepper Jack Cheese and Fresh Jalapeno
…and my new favorite ASPARAGUS FRIES- Asparagus with Tarragon, Citrus Aioli
New Marlow’s locations are popping up fast. I need to visit their Avalon Alpharetta location really soon. It’s perfect for dinner and movie, the theater is right next door. That may be my next date night with hubby. Margaritas at Marlow’s and stroll to a movie. PERFECT!
