Preparing the best Sour Patch drinks

Making a Sour Patch margarita
Put the magical ingredients of sugar and water into a saucepan, then bring to life on medium-high heat.
Reduce your intensity slightly until it comes to gentle rolling boil; let simmer for 10 minutes so that all sweet things come true – syrup thickened!
Now pour out this special mixture from fairyland into either a jar or bowl and witness as it cools off before your eyes.
With warm weather around the corner, it’s time to mix up a batch of margaritas! Making simple syrup is easy enough but if you need an alternative option, agave syrup or honey will do the trick. If all else fails, store-bought pre-made syrups are available as well.
Gather your ingredients – tequila infused with either fruit juice or jalapeno peppers paired with lime and sweetener – fill a shaker glass iced cold and shake vigorously before pouring into sugar rimmed glasses for that extra kick of sweetness.
Preparing double measurements yields larger cocktails while using coupe glasses brings out more flavor in each sip so pick whichever one best fits your fancy!
Give your margaritas a sweet kick and have some fun with the garnish!
