Although in Mexico we don’t celebrate 5 de Mayo as our friends in the States do, we don’t need too much convincing to have a celebration. For today’s 152 nd anniversary of the Battle at Puebla, we thought we would share with you a recipe for one of Cabo’s most popular drinks – margarita – but it gets even better; here is a Waborita, Cabo Wabo margarita recipe for you.
“Waborita” is probably one of Cabo Wabo’s (and Cabo’s) most popular drinks. Margarita, or, as they named it at Cabo Wabo, Waborita, features Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo tequila, Baja’s traditional Damiana Liqueur, and some other ingredients, which make it a very potent and delicious cocktail! Waborita can be served straight up as a martini, on the rocks, or blended as a frozen margarita. FYI: Damiana Liqueur is a light herbal-based liqueur made with the damiana herb that grows in Baja California, Mexico. Its bottle is uniquely shaped and is modeled after an Incan Goddess.
1 ounce Cabo Wabo tequila
1/2 ounce Damiana Liqueur (if you cannot get this, just use more orange liqueur)
1/2 ounce orange liqueur
1/2 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice
splash blue Curacao
lime peel (garnish)
Pour tequila, Damiana, orange liqueur, and lime juice in a shaker and fill with ice (Sammy officially says “Mucho Ice”).
Shake it up until ice cold.
Pour into a chilled, salt rimmed martini glass.
Drop in lime peel.
Finish with a splash of blue curacao.
