Traditional Margarita

traditional margarita
The traditional margarita is not the "frozen" version most of us are served at your favorite Mexican restaurant. Instead it is served over a bit of ice. If you have not tried the traditional version you are in for a thirst quenching treat.

Ingredients

    • 3 tablespoons tequila
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons triple sec
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
    • crushed ice or ice cubes
    • lime wedge, and salt

Instructions

If you want to salt the glass, first rub the rim with a lime wedge then dip the rim onto a plate filled with Kosher salt (a coarse ground salt that adheres nicely to the glass).

Combine the tequila, triple sec and lime juice in a shaker (add the crushed ice if you prefer) shake the to mix. Pour into glass if using the crushed ice or pour over ice cubes. Garnish with the lime wedge.

Serving glass: Old Fashion

Tips
Grate a small amount of lime zest and add it to the mixture.

Use fresh lime juice, the bottled version simply does not compare.

This is a stronger version than what is normally served in U.S. restaurants so pace yourself! ned glass (or margarita glass)
