Keri’s Bar: Classic Margarita
One crazy thing, among others, that has happened during this pandemic is my need to make a cocktail other than a martini! Shocker, I know! BUT, my first try with making one was NOT a success! Thanks to my neighbor for the advice, “it’s all about the fresh lime”, I decided to try another on-line recipe and discovered this one from the NY Times. Success!
2 ounces blanco tequila
Juice of 1 whole lime
½ ounce triple sec, preferably Cointreau
Salt for rim (optional)
Lime wedge, for garnish
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add tequila, lime juice and triple sec. Shake. Pour, with the ice, into a highball or footed glass (salt rim first if you like). Garnish with wedge of lime.
P.S. Of course there are many “fancier” margaritas out there – but hey, just like I like a classic martini, I prefer a classic margarita!
