Sour Patch Margarita Cocktail Recipe

You’ll taste that in this margarita – and it’s great. As the name suggests, the sour patch margarita combines the flavors of sour candy, mixes them up, and strains out a tasty drink that’s laced with sugar. Whether you need something sour and sweet on a hot summer afternoon, this is the food for you. If you serve it on the rocks, you can add some gummy candy to the ice for an extra treat, the same way you would with a gummi bear margarita. Margaritas are made with lime-infused tequila as the base, layered with layers of fruit flavors on top. The Midori makes it bright green in color and tastes like melon, the triple sec complements orange juice, and the sour mix adds a sweet and sour flavour. Finish off the “sour patch” experience, squeeze a touch of lime juice over the top, and you won’t want to skip the sugar rim.
