The margarita has to be one of the greatest cocktails ever invented.The combination of tequila, triple sec, and lime juice is so natural that it really doesn’t matter who invented it (a 3:2:1 ratio is a good starting point). The following recipe is a true keeper in your party hand book, and is
brought to us by Mesa Grill mixologist Laurence Kretchmer. It’s critical to use fresh lime juice, of course. I prefer silver (also called blanco) tequila; and suggest everyone look for the words “100 percent blue agave” on the label. The triple sec contributes balancing sweetness, but less flavor than the other ingredients—Cointreau is always a good choice, and recently the venerable Combier brand has become available in the United States. You can also leave out the triple sec.
Combine 2 oz 100 percent blue agave blancotequila
1 1/4 oz fresh lime juice and 1/2 oz agave nectar in a cocktail shaker with ice
Shake vigorously; strain into an ice-filled rocks glass (rimmed with salt, if desired).
Add a lime wedge is often used as a garnish, but this Margarita is plenty tart without it.
Like every lady I like to kick back and have a cocktail or two or three or four.. The next day I feel sluggish and I don’t want to exercise or even shop… You ladies know the feeling.
