Our Interpretation Of Mojito’s Grand Slam Margarita

If you’ve ever been to the US Open, then no doubt you’ve been to Mojito, the Cuban-inspired restaurant within walking distance of all the hard-court action. This recipe is as close to the original “Grand Slam” sold during the US Open.

Compared to most other major sporting events, the U.S. Open at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center has always offered an upscale experience for spectators when it comes to food and drinks. I’ve been lucky to have gone to 3 of them, and each time, I experienced at least a couple of new eateries, but I always make the time to visit my faves.

One such fave is Mojito, a Cuban-inspired restaurant and bar. OMG… even thinking about it as I write this is making my mouth water! They have the BEST smoked pork bocaditos and roasted corn, like EVER! But even better, is their “Grand Slam Margarita made with Jose Cuervo Tradicional Reposado tequila with Cointreau, prickly pear syrup and lime juice.

The bad news is that the Grand Slam Margarita costs around $15, and a pitcher is around $45. Yikes! AM I right?

The good news, however, is that I’ve been playing around with ingredients, and came up with what is damn close to the original. Now I can have one whenever I want, and it won’t cost me an arm and a leg.

And the BEST news is that I’m sharing the recipe with YOU, so you can love it as much as I do!
