You guys know we grow a lot of tropical fruit in our garden— starfruit being one of them! Personally, I find starfruit to be more of a novelty fruit— more than a snack, it’s mostly just really pretty to look at. But it does taste absolutely great in beverages too (so refreshing!). Starfruit lemonade is already a treat around here when we have an abundance of starfruit— but what about cocktails?! This really only makes sense, right?!
Well, Patrón Tequila is having a competition– a search for 2016’s Margarita of the Year. Seven completely unique margaritas made by seven unique bartenders. So which one did I personally choose for the margarita of the year? Well, the tropical starfruit one made by Bettina Barnoczki from Miami Florida of course. I mean, duh. It’s how I like my cocktails to be— light, refreshing, slightly tart and fruity– but it doesn’t taste like you stuck your head in a bowl of punch. Just something you want to sip on in a cool warm breeze under banana trees. Probably in a hammock too. Sounds amazing right?
