12 Days of Drinkmas: Margarita
It's a week night (or as like to call them school nights) and sometimes a glass of wine just doesn't cut it. So, Que the Tequila. Tequila has always been one of my go to alcohols. Nothing says Tequila like a classic Margarita, which brings us to day 5 of DRINKMAS!
Blended or over the rocks, original or flavored. Sooo many different ways to enjoy this classic cocktail. Salted rims are always a must in my book. Tip: Use cocktail salt or kosher salt, do not use regular table salt which can be over powering. Either way you drink your Margarita in my book they are all tasty.
- 1 1/2 oz Tequila
- 1 oz Triple sec, or orange liquor
- 3/4 oz fresh lime juice
- Kosher salt for the rims
- Lime wedges, to garnish
Salt your glass rims.
In a shaker mix all ingredients together and add ice.
Pour over ice in your salt rimmed glass. Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy!
The great thing about margaritas, they can be dressed up any which way. Add different types of fruit, fresh or juice and you have a brand new drink! In Hawaii we have a seasoning (because I don't know what else to call it), called li-hing mui. It is a combination between sweet and salty powder, we put that S**t on everything. From icees, to fruit to hint hint** MARGARITAS! If you ever go to Hawaii and they have different flavored margaritas, you will find a Li-hing mui margarita. YOU NEED TO GET IT!
This simple classic cocktail is perfect for something a little more than your (usual- we won't tell) glass of wine during the week. Try it out and let us know what you think!
