In honor of May the 5th, I’m sharing with you my favorite margarita recipe, which was given to me by a bartender in Cali, which was given to him by his father. It is by far the best margarita I’ve ever had.
Yes, you could buy a pre-made mix, but why would you when it’s so simple to make?
3 oz Fresh Lime Juice
2 oz Silver Tequila
1 oz Grand Marnier (adjust to taste)
1 oz Agave Nectar (adjust to taste)
(These amounts are approximate and more of a guideline and should be adjusted to your personal taste.)
Rim glass by dipping in lime juice, then into margarita salt, fill 1/2 of the glass with ice.
Pour Lime Juice, Tequila, Grand Marnier and Agave Nectar in a cocktail shaker over ice. Shake – and strain into prepped glass.
