Disney Perfection’s Magic Margarita

When it comes to celebrating Cinco de Mayo there’s one absolute necessity: margaritas. We decided to take on the challenge of bringing a splash of Disney magic to our homemade margaritas. The results? Perfection. Like best-bar-in Mexico-meets-Trader-Sam’s perfection. Now we’re sharing the recipe so you can get in on the boozey fun.

All the ingredients you’ll need

All the ingredients you’ll need

Disney perfection’s magic margarita

  • 1.5 oz tequila, use your favorite

  • oz triple sec, such as Cointreau

  • .75 oz fresh lime juice

  • .25 oz agave (substitute simple syrup)

  • 1 sugar cube

  • .5 ounce rum, preferably 151 proof

  • 1/2 Lime, cut into half

  • 1/2 tsp lemon extract (optional)

  • Chili lime seasoning (like tajine)


  1. In a cocktail shaker filled with ice add the tequila, lime juice, triple sec and agave. Shake to combine (you should feel the shaker get quite cold before you’re done.) Strain into a serving glass filled with ice.

  2. Now mix the granulated sugar and salt together on a small plate. Dip each lime wheel into the mixture and shake off any excess. Pour both the rum and lemon extract over each sugar cube, enough to coat the cube.

  3. Place the lime floating in your margarita, then stack a sugar cube on top of the lime. (Note if you’re having trouble getting your lime to float try adding more ice.) Using a long lighter, ignite the sugar cubes. You should see the sugar begin to caramelize. Toss your chili lime seasoning into the flame to further ignite it (think uh-oha.) When you’re ready blow out the flame and push the lime down into the margarita.

  4. Sip and enjoy!

While optional the lemon extract makes for an extra large flame – so we recommend it. This is one of our house secrets!

We hope these margaritas bring a splash of Disney magic into your evening. They’re simply the best margaritas we’ve tasted (and we’ve tasted…a lot.) Let us know how you liked them in the comments below!
