The Perfect Margarita?

Sam B | Mar 3, 2006 11:02 AM

Around my house, Friday night is marked by a quick run to the Taco Wagon, and shaking up a couple of perfect Margaritas.

After many years of experimenting, several years ago we arrived at the very simple formula of...

1/3 Fresh Squeezed Lime juice
1/3 Triple Sec (Bols)
1/3 Tequila (Sauza Hornitos)

It's a ratio recipe so you can make any amount you wish

Pack a Pint Glass with crushed ice, and fill with the above mixture. They are also great strained up in a chilled Martini glass if you prefer. Salt or not is up to the individual.

I feel strongly about not using gold tequila, or brandy based orange liquers, which always seem to give a carmelized character. Also, we have found that there is great variation in the quality of Triple Sec.

What's your recipe?
