In honor of Cinco de Mayo,
I thought that it would be fun to break from the norm and share a margarita recipe today as well as a round-up of my favorite margarita recipes.
The margarita is my all-time favorite cocktail and
I love it in so many ways.
But, the classic margarita is probably one of the best.
2 ounces tequila
1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
1 ounce lime juice
1/4 ounce simple syrup
In a shaker with ice add tequila, Grand Marnier, lime juice, and simple syrup. Shake until well combined. Pour into a glass rimmed with lime juice and salt. Garnish with a lime wedge.
(I used one of my new ice molds for the super-big ice cube--I love it. It doesn't melt fast and dilute the drink.)
and now for the round-up...
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and enjoys a Margarita!!
