I don’t really need an excuse like Cinco De Mayo to sip a Margarita or nibble on tortilla chips and guacamole, as this combo is a favorite of mine year round! This weekend forget the sugar laden store bought Margarita mixes and try making your own fresh cocktail instead. Here is the perfect indulgence for a day in the sun anytime of year.
Makes 1 serving. This recipe easily doubles, triples etc. for a pitcher.
INGREDIENTS & RECIPE
1.5 parts tequila
1.5 parts triple sec (It’s worth springing for Cointreau)
1 part FRESH lime juice
Splash of FRESH orange juice
Splash of club soda
Agave syrup (as desired)
Prep your glasses by slicing a lime and rubbing it on the edge. Dip edge in salt and let dry. Mix tequila, triple sec and lime juice with ice in a shaker. Pour over ice in glasses. Add a splash of fresh O.J and club soda. If you like a sweeter margarita add a bit of agave syrup to taste. Garnish with a lime.
