FAQ's

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I use a different type of tequila instead of Herradura Silver for the Eclipse Margarita?

Yes, you can use other types of tequila in your Eclipse Margarita. While Herradura Silver is recommended for its smooth, clean flavor, you can substitute it with any good-quality blanco or silver tequila. The key is to choose a tequila that you enjoy the taste of, as it will significantly influence the overall flavor of the cocktail.

For the Herradura Silver Eclipse Margarita, fresh blackberries or a thin lime wheel make ideal garnishes. You could also rim the glass with salt or sugar to add an extra dimension of flavor. For a festive look, skewer a few blackberries on a cocktail pick and place it atop the drink.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

Is there a preferred temperature or method to serve the Herradura Silver Eclipse Margarita?

The Herradura Silver Eclipse Margarita is best served cold. It's recommended to shake the ingredients with ice to chill the cocktail thoroughly before straining it into a whisky glass. You may also consider chilling the whisky glass beforehand to keep the cocktail colder for longer. No additional ice is needed in the glass unless you prefer your margarita on the rocks.

The Herradura Silver Eclipse Margarita has an alcohol content of 19%, which is slightly higher than a standard margarita, typically around 15% to 17% alcohol by volume (ABV) depending on the specific recipe used. This difference is primarily due to the inclusion of raspberry liqueur in addition to tequila, which elevates the overall alcohol content.

The Herradura Silver Eclipse Margarita, with its refreshing mix of lime juice, blackberries, and raspberry liqueur, is ideally suited for spring and summer.
