It's Friday 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.
Now, make one for yourself, one for your budy and one for those that never came home.
