August means alcohol? A month for margaritas? Call it what you want, we’re always looking for a reason to imbibe. So throw in a charity angle and sign us up! Origin India Restaurant and Bar (4480 Paradise Road) will donate $2 from the sale of every Orange-Peach Margarita in August to benefit Create a Change, a local nonprofit that educates youth about growing organic gardens and fighting childhood obesity. So get off your butt, head down to Origin India and raise a glass for a good cause.
1.5 oz Tequila
.75 oz Cointreau
3 teaspoons peach puree (fresh peaches, agave nectar, cinnamon)
.75 oz Lime juice
Dash of peach bitters
Combine ingredients in a Boston shaker with ice. Shake vigorously for a minimum of 10 seconds. Pour into a margarita glass rimmed with salt or sugar, depending on preference. Garnish with a lime wedge, orange or peach slice.
