Yes, it’s true, it really is the best. But you have to like ‘em real. Appreciate good tequila.
On the rocks.
How do I know they are the best? It’s not just because I make them and we drink them. It’s because I learned the mysterious art of making it while we were in Mexico. We were staying in a villa. We had a private chef for the week. She showed me the ways of margarita.
Of course, we also got stuffed on her food, but that’s another story.
The best margarita ever:
1 part fresh squeezed lime juice
1 part simple syrup (equal parts water and sugar, boiled down a bit and cooled)
1 part really good tequila
Here are some tips…
- Like everything in life, use the best, high-quality ingredients you can find.
- If your limes are refrigerated, pop them in the microwave (if you have one) for 20 seconds. You get a lot more juice out of them.
- Use reposado tequila, it’s the right mix of power and smoothness. We like Cazadores reposado, but I am trying Milagro reposado today. I like it so far.
- You don’t have to shake it, just mix it together with a spoon and pour over ice.
Also, I find that 1 lime and equal parts tequila and simple syrup are the right amount for a single serving.
