Located at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa, Cibolo Moon is spicing up the traditional margarita with its Raspberry Habañero Margarita, and you can create your own version at home.

Ingredients:
– 1.5 ounces raspberry habañero
    infusion (see directions below)
– .5 ounce Patron Citronge
– 1 ounce lime juice
– 1 ounce agave
– Raspberries and lime wedge
    for garnish

In a mixing tin, combine tequila, Patron Citronge, lime juice and agave. With a strainer, pour the mixture over ice in a 12-ounce margarita glass garnished with a salted rim, lime wedge and raspberries.

Tequila Infusion Directions:
Choose your tequila and flavors: Use a 100% blue agave silver or blanco tequila. Blanco tequilas work best because they are unaged, thus are the freshest and can take on the most flavor. Herbs, spices and fruits are most commonly used for infusions. For best results, use fresh ingredients only.

Prepare the ingredients: Choose a clean, airtight jar (a quart-size mason jar works well). Wash fresh ingredients, place them inside the jar, and fill it with tequila. Shake a few times and cover tightly with a lid. For raspberries and citrus fruit, wash and slice thinly. For habañero peppers, score and leave whole or cut in half. Leave the seeds in for a spicy kick or remove them for less spice.

Infusion time: You will want to store your infusion in a cool, dark place and shake it a few times a day for the duration of the infusion. On average, the ingredients should stay in the tequila for three to five days. Some of your more intense flavors will only need three days; less intense flavors should stay in the jar for a full week or more. You should do a taste test every few days to see if the flavors are sufficient.

The iconic Reunion Tower in downtown Dallas will soon welcome a new restaurant, Crown Block steakhouse. Reunion Tower restaurants have been renown over the years for their slowly rotating view of the city. However, owners and husband-wife business partners Kim Canteenwalla and Elizabeth Blau have chosen to keep the dining area stationary. The previous restaurant, Wolfgang Puck’s Five Sixty, spun 360 degrees, but it closed in 2020 during the pandemic.
