Miss A Columnist

Jennifer Rudolph loves to cook! She finds the kitchen to be a very inspiring and inviting place. Over the years, researching recipes has become one of her greatest indulgences and she has piles of marked cookbooks, torn magazines pages and bookmarked websites to prove it! She has found that writing is the perfect way for her to share and organize her evolving collection of recipes, both new and old.

Recipe for The Perfect Margarita

With Cinco de Mayo being today, I find only appropriate that I share my favorite margarita recipe with you. I have a love/hate relationship with margaritas, well, at least I did. I have always loved the idea of sitting outside on a pretty day sipping an ice cold margarita (rocks and salt of course), but unfortunately I have many unpleasant memories of overly sugary mix drinks with a faint lime concentrate flavor. Honestly, those pre-made mixes are what steered me from this wonderful drink for so many years. A while back I found this margarita recipe, created by Jamie Oliver, and thought it sounded good enough to sample. I really like his fresh and wholesome approach to cooking and this drink is a prime example of his talent. There are not any additives or sugary substitutes in this drink, only the basics. The one thing I will say about this drink is that as refreshing and delicious as it is, there are almost three shots of alcohol in it so proceed with caution! When having a party, I will mix the ingredients in advance and store them in the refrigerator until guests arrive and then shake them prior to serving.
