Margarita Cocktail Time, always?!

Margarita cocktail time – anytime at all!

This was originally a World Cup cocktail. It was just what we needed while celebrating.

However, why wait for an occasion, if there’s a ‘y’ in the day, we can always have fun & cocktails –

Margarita Time

 

So what is this lovely Margarita drink? 

A margarita is a cocktail consisting of tequila, triple sec, and lime juice often served with salt on the rim of the glass.

The drink is served shaken with ice (on the rocks), blended with ice (frozen margarita), or without ice (straight up).

It’s always margarita time by the way 

So what glass should you use for a Margarita Cocktail? 

Although it has become acceptable to serve this cocktail in a wide variety of glass types I do like traditional.

The glasses can range  from cocktail and wine glasses to pint glasses and even large schooners, the drink is traditionally served in the eponymous margarita glass, a stepped-diameter variant of a cocktail glass or champagne coupe.

Enjoy this classic and let me know what you think?

Ingredients

Serves 1 large glass or 2 short glasses

  • Ice
  • Juice of 1 lime (about 30ml)
  • 30ml of Triple Sec – or use Grand Marnier if PB (posh bird)
  • 50ml Tequila

Preparation Method

  1. Stick it all in a shaker and SHAKE!
  2. Grind rock / sea / kosher salt onto plate
  3. Rub a lime wedge around the rim of a glass and dip in salt – do not use table salt!
  4. Pour into glass – I add the ice from the shaker into it too, makes it last longer although authentic ones don’t have ice in them.

Enjoy!
