Leah Behr: The Perfect Margarita

The Perfect Margarita

There's nothing I love more than Mexican cuisine, and throwing a good fiesta! One of mine and Bran's favorite Summer pastimes is to whip up a batch of guacamole and throw some carne asada on the grill. Of course, no fiesta at our place is complete without Margaritas! 

Bran and I have sort of become "marg snobs" and are super picky about the ingredients (mixes are a no-no!) In the spirit of Summer (and trying to "will" Fall away) I'm sharing this concoction that we think is the perfect margarita.

Cheers to the freakin' weekend!

1 Jigger Silver Tequila (I like Milagro)
1 oz Cointreau
1 oz Triple Sec
1 1/2 Limes (squeezed)

Shake Over Ice

Salt Your Rim + Pour!

Psst - If the limes are too bitter, I add a little simple syrup. Another fun way to mix up this recipe is to add a squeeze of grapefruit juice.

  1. I love a good margarita and had no idea they were so easy to make. I will have to try this at home, especially with grapefruit. Yum!
