It's Friday - Go Make a Margarita
It's hot outside and one of the best things you can do is to get a good margarita. People tend to overcomplicate this simple and delicious drink. Here it is, the best and simplest margarita recipe ever.
The main ingredient of the magarita is tequila. Buy a cheap tequila and your marganita will suck. I like good tequila. Cabo Wabo Tequila is one of the best I've tried and it makes a hell of a margarita.
- 4 parts tequila
- 3 parts Cointreau
- 3 parts fresh lime juice
- 1 part simple syrup
That's it. Add all into a cocktail shaker, shake well. Add ice to a tall glass and pour. Enjoy.
Ok, so what's a "part"? It's what you make of it, so if a shot glass is the "whole" then it's 4 parts, then 3 parts become 3/4 of a shot glass. You get the rest.
Simple syrup. Simple and easy: boil 1/2 a cup of water, add 1/2 a cup of sugar. When it dissolves put it in the fridge until it's cold. Done.
