Cocktail of the Week: Margaritas at Las Ventanas

By Lauren Jade Hill

For National Margarita Day, we take a look at the unique twist on the classic drink that’s seen at Las Ventanas al Paraiso, A Rosewood Resort, in Los Cabos, Mexico.

The Seng Margarita

  • 5 oz Tequila Casa Dragones Blanco
  • 5 oz Cointreau
  • 33 oz Ginseng with royal jelly
  • 75 oz Lemon juice

Create the coastal resort’s Seng Margarita by combining the tequila, Cointreau, ginseng with royal jelly and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker with ice, shaking vigorously, then straining into a glass. At Las Ventanas al Paraiso, this is topped with a spinach foam and finished by adding salt and activated charcoal to the rim.

The Jalapeño Margarita

  • 1 Jalapeno (muddled, no seeds)
  • 5 oz Tequila
  • 75 oz Cointreau
  • 1 oz Lime juice
  • 75 oz Sugar syrup

To make the Jalapeño Margarita, first prepare the cocktail glass by rubbing the rim with lime juice and dipping it in salt. You can then bring all the ingredients together in a cocktail shaker with ice, shaking vigorously before straining into the glass.

Made from pure agave tequila and with little to no sugar, these cocktails are a healthier take on the classic margarita. Each unique drink was created by the resort’s expert tequiliers. At Las Ventanas, you can try the cocktails in the Tequila & Ceviche Bar where these tequila masters determine guests’ tequila preferences through one-on-one blind tasting sessions.
