The Perfect Margarita . . .

Here's to Cinco de Mayo!

Hope you're all planning on celebrating this Sunday, at the very least having a few friends over for a festive drink. Here's my recipe for The Perfect Margarita. It's quick and easy to make with just the right amount of citrus, balanced by a salty sweetness. 
Tastes like vacation!


1.5 oz. Tequila
1.5 oz. Cointreau
1 oz. Fresh Lime Juice 
1/2 Tbsp Agave Nectar
A Splash of Soda Water
Lime & Salt for Rim 

Prep glasses rubbing a sliced lime around the edge, dip rim in salt and let dry. Combine tequila, cointreau, lime juice, agave nectar & soda water in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously. Serve on the rocks in salt-rimmed glasses. Use lime to garnish.

Cheers! Salud!
