Margarita Time, always?!

Margarita Time, always?!

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!

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). Although it has become acceptable to serve a margarita in a wide variety of glass types, ranging 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? After all it’s Margarita Time

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!
