Sriracha Margarita

Rooster-rita all the way…

Sriracha goes with anything…seriously. For instance, turn that classic margarita into a Rooster-rita with a little dab of the famous sauce. It provides plenty of heat and a nice splash of color.

Spice up the Sriracha margarita even more with a hot sauce salted rim. It’s easy to do, and provides a delicious kick from the minute your lips hit the glass. Top it off with a jalapeño wheel garnish and you’re off to the races with this delicious spicy cocktail twist.
