Confession. We drank ALOT of Margarita’s during our time in America, so we quickly worked out what was a good one, and what was not. Premix was definitely a NO. One great thing about ordering drinks in the States is that you can make any adjustments or requests and they don’t bat an eyelid. I always opted for a skinny with extra salt over ice.
Here’s a really simple, yummy (but strong!) Margarita recipe that just MUST be mixed this week to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!
Makes 2, or 1 depending on how big your glass is!
2oz Tequila (I use Casamigoes Blanca)
2oz freshly squeezed lime juice
1oz light agave nectar or simple syrup
Coarse sea salt
Use a lime wedge to wet the rims of your glasses. Mix together the salt and chilli on a plate and salt the rim of your glass.
Add tequila, lime juice, Cointreau and agave nectar or simple syrup to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. If you like an extra heat, add in a few slices of Jalapeno.
Shake well then pour into your glass filled with ice.
Enjoy and repeat!
