A classic margarita should always and only ever be made with fresh lime juice and really good Tequila!It should not be overally sweet and you should be able to taste the Tequila. The cheaper the alcohol, the harder you will need to work to mask the terrible flavor it has. Good alcohol is something you really want to be able to taste and experience.
Happy Drinking Amigos!
1 Cup Fresh Lime Juice
2 TB Agave
1/2 Cup Gold or Silver Tequila
Kosher Salt or Sea Salt
DirectionsIn a wide edged bowl, mix together salt and fresh lime zest. Using a moist paper towel, wet the rim of your cup. Flip the cup over and gently dip it in the lime salt until you have a good coating around the rim.
In a shaker, add the fresh lime juice, agave and tequila. Add ice and shake vigorously for 2-3 minutes until the agave is melted and ingredients get cold.
Serve as is or over ice!
