Summer is for Margaritas

2 136
On a hot summer day, serve up a a cold margarita and pair this refreshing cocktail with your favorite spicy foods such as chipotle crab cakes, steak quesadillas, empanadas with habanero sauce, or creamy guacamole and chips. If you want the best Margarita available, make it with fresh ingredients and select a premium tequila. And for goodness sake, stay away from pre-made Margarita mixes.


margaritas.jpg My favorite Margarita

  • 2 oz silver tequila
  • 1 oz premium Cointreau
  • 1/2 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
  • coarse kosher salt
  • lime wedge
  • Optional: Garnish with a small squeeze of blood orange. You may want to reduce Cointreau a bit if you add the blood orange. Taste a sip and adjust to suit your taste. 


  1. If you like salt on your cocktail: Place a thin layer of salt onto a small plate. Rub the rim of a cocktail glass with lime juice. Holding the stem of the glass, rotate the rim in salt. Its best if the salt is only on the outside of the glass.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker half full with ice. Place all ingredients in a shaker. Shake well. Strain into the glass, garnish with lime wedges if you like or a squeeze of blood orange, and serve.
