Drink This: Habanero (?) Margarita at Redbones

This might end up being my worst post ever.

Mainly because I can't, for the life of me, remember what the above margarita from Redbones is called. Let's just say I had it at the start of the Annual Pineapple Pub Crawl last Saturday - a pub crawl where a bunch of fun people decorate pineapples, and then carry their embellished fruit from bar to bar around Cambridge and Somerville. Hence the memory lapse.

My decorated pineapple.

Redbones has a variety of margaritas, but this one, on this particular day, was a special. I can't recall if it was made with jalapeno- or habanero-infused tequila (I'm 95% sure it was habanero), but I can tell you that it was delicious. It had the perfect kick from the peppers without being overly fiery, and the margarita was wonderfully strong while still maintaining an enjoyable, smooth flavor. A few other people in my group also got margaritas, including Redbones' house concoction, and all were spot-on. 

Sorry for the lack of information in this post, but the bottom line is: get to Redbones and get yourself a margarita. It is Friday, after all! 

What are you up to this weekend?

  1. Wish I knew of the pineapple crawl, sounds like a lot of fun! I went to a place in Brighton the other week and had a Skinny Spicy Margarita. It had an interesting kick made with Tanteo Tequila, a tequila infused with jalapeno. I'm not a huge jalapeno fan but it was good. I posted it on facebook and need to find a bottle before going to see my family next weekend (they looove margaritas).

    p.s. have you ever tried a Mexican Martini? I had one in Austin. It was amazing! It was my 27th birthday drink! Highly recommend!


    1. That Skinny Spicy Margarita sounds fantastic! And I've never had a Mexican Martini - is that just a martini made with tequila? Do tell!

  2. Hahahaha. This blog post had me cracking up!

  3. You started off a pub crawl with that? You're a champ!

  4. your pineapple is adorable. that margarita, whether is was jalapeno or habanero, looks amazing.
