The Panty Dropper Margarita

A dangerously smooth concoction at Margarita’s Kansas City not to be missed!
I had a sample of this luscious libation at the Taste of KC and it was love at first sip. I thought, “Wow! I have got to spread the word on this” because if you have not had one you are definitely missing out! Finds like this are exactly why I write this blog.

So a few days later, I made my way down to the Southwest Boulevard location to get the scoop. Jason Chadwick, the Chief Operations Officer was gracious enough to give me the details. Thank you Jason!

This award winning margarita starts with blueberries, which those of you who know me, know I love a blueberry. I don’t know how many summers now I have spent out at the berry patch picking my own. I even tried growing some blueberry bushes, but that didn’t work out so well.

The blueberries are macerated and then infused with El Mayor Tequila. Blueberries and tequila, tell me…how can you go wrong? That mixture then sits for a week and half. What is left is this deliciously flavored Tequila (which I had the pleasure of tasting).

Once the Tequila is infused to perfection it is time to create the Margarita. It begins by muddling fresh or frozen (thawed) blueberries and a slice of lime in a glass, then add in the blueberry infused tequila, some Grand Marnier, add a splash of sweet and sour and presto you have “The Panty Dropper Margarita”. Once you taste it, you will know how it got its name.

Of course Margarita’s doesn’t have just great margaritas. The food is amazing too. My husband is a chips and salsa connoisseur and thinks theirs are some of the best in town.
The owners are Tanya Abarca and Jason Quirarte. Margarita’s was opened 25 years ago by their fathers who were great friends and loved golf. To try and earn money for some golf clubs they decided to sell burritos. Needless to say the burritos were so good they made enough for the clubs and were encouraged to sell them all the time and so Margarita’s was born.

Margarita’s has been so successful that in addition to their original location on Southwest Boulevard, they have opened locations in Lenexa and Gladstone. Margarita’s has a new spawn in the works they want to franchise called Margarita’s Xpress. This concept is going to have the same quality and delicious food they are known for packaged in a fast and affordable setting. Margarita’s Xpress is set to open mid July in Liberty.

With 3 locations around the metro, it should be easy to find one near you. Stop in and try out the Panty Dropper Margarita for yourself and see what happens.
