Margarita

May 10th, 2009 · No Comments

It’s Margarita night tomorrow night.  We’ll try to post the food menu later, but here’s the drink recipe:

1 1/2 oz Tequila – we’ll use Cuervo Gold
1 oz triple sec – we use Patrone’s Citronge
3/4 oz fresh lime juice

This is a bit dryer that what most people expect a Margarita.  The Citronge also adds a bit of fire as compared with Cointreau or Grand Marnier – but we like it.  We used bottle lime juice and the taste just wasn’t as fresh or bright as it needed to be.  Alicia tried it once with sweetened lime juice (Rose’s makes a good one) and it was more in line with what people would expect, but I’ll stand by the recipe above.  Don’t forget to rim your glass with Kosher salt.
