Classic Margarita

Is there anything more refreshing on a hot summer day or with spicy Mexican food than a icy cold margarita? I like mine simple and tart.

Classic Margarita

1 oz Good Tequila. I use a Reposado Tequila. One of my favorite brands is Casadores Reposado. The reposado is aged, so it is much smoother and complex flavor in comparison to a silver. An anejo is even better, but a reposado does just fine and is a little easier on the pocket book.

1/2 oz Orange Liqueur

2 limes juiced

Optional: splash of agave or honey simple syrup. I don’t like it in mine, but for those who need a little sweetener.

Pour all ingredients into a shaker filled 1/2 full with ice. Give a good 20 second shake and pour into a sea salt rimmed glass and serve.
