Do you know what the perfect accessory to your ensemble is today? No, it’s not cufflinks or bracelets. It’s a margarita because it’s National Tequila Day. What’s our favorite margarita recipe? We like to keep it simple – and always remember that the real key is fresh (not from a mix bottle) and premium tequila.
Makes 1 Serving
2 lime slices or wedges
¼ cup tequila blanco
1 tablespoon agave syrup (nectar)
¼ cup fresh lime juice
Pour some kosher salt into a small dish. Rub 1 lime slice over half the rim of an Old Fashioned glass (if you prefer your Margarita on the rocks) or a coupe glass (if you prefer it up). Dip rim of glass into salt.
Combine tequila, agave syrup, and juice in a cocktail shaker; fill with ice and shake well. Strain into prepared glass. Garnish with second lime slice.
