It has been extremely hot in DC. Yesterday it was 92 in my backyard. 92 in April, you have to be kidding me. So I wanted to make yet another frozen drink. I had to choose based on the liquor I had on hand. Luckily, I had plenty of tequila. With tequila comes margaritas.
I tried to get a photo of the whole glass, but it is not the best. The dollar store by my house sells these cactus margarita glasses for you guessed it, $1. I had to pick up a couple as they were one heck of a find.
- 1 1/2 oz tequila
- 1/4 oz lime juice
- 1/2 oz triple sec
- 3 oz sour mix
- 1 cup of ice
Mix all of the ingredients in a shaker or place all of the ingredients in a blender. Works either way. Blend or shake and then pour into a cactus glass. Well that last part is optional. You should use whatever glass you have available.
Bartender Tip of the Day
Salting a glass
They sell fancy schmancy salting apparatuses that have a round sponge and a ring of salt. They are handy, but the best way to salt a glass is to use a wedge of lime. Circle the rim of the glass with the wedge and then dip the glass onto a plate coated with salt. This will give you the perfect rimmed glass. The same works for sugar. Also note that if your drink is lemon based use a lemon wedge and if your drink is orange based use an orange. The extra hint of flavor will add to your drinks.
