My drink of choice: A classic Margarita.
Cold, delicious, simple & a refreshing treat to the weekend.
Since making my own classic margarita’s at home I can’t stand ordering one that’s made incorrectly. I’m assuming it’s either cheap tequila, added sugar, fakey fake premade mix, or an extra cheap ass ingredient thrown in as filler. Who knows!
I always ask for my Margarita with no added sugar and that usually forces the bartender to mix a fresh drink, w/fresh ingredients. And surprisingly, the bartenders never seem bothered – more appreciative that they get to use their mixology skills to create a delicious, fresh margarita. Love it!
3 Oz Tequila
2 Oz Triple Sec
1 Oz Lime Juice
Splash of Orange Juice
Directions: Mix in a cocktail shaker w/ice & pour over ice. (*I go light on the tequila & heavy on the lime + orange juice)
For Wafiq’s Birthday, we mixed a large batch and put it in a water bottle for people to pour over ice. It was a big hit! We were at the pool so something cold & refreshing w/out a ton of added sugar was the perfect touch.
And this tequila is my favorite. One of my most memorable nights is drinking it w/cheese & crackers at the house we stayed in while living in Los Angeles. The owners bought it & invited us in – great conversations and memories tied to this bottle. Perfect little buzz w/out a hangover too. You get it.
Mix it up & pour yourself a glass! Unwind, relax, & enjoy.
