This alcoholic aloe vera beverage is not only an unusual use of the plant, it also adds a dynamic look to a tasty drink. Most widely known for its effects in skin care and soothing sun burns, aloe vera is not typically an ingredient one finds in food or recipes. Aloe water is an exception, but it is usually a store-bought product and not a homemade refreshment.

Created by Elsie Larson at the blog A Beautiful Mess, this Aloe Margarita contains whole aloe leaves as well as aloe juice, lime juice, margarita mix and tequila blanco. A pink salt rim can also be added as garnish and a splash of cucumber wouldn't go amiss.

This remixed margarita and aloe vera beverage reflect a minimalist design as well as light and easy cocktail culture.
