The best margarita recipe ever

Posted by | May 05, 2011 | Uncategorized | 2 Comments

Yes, it’s true, it really is the best. But you have to like ‘em real. Appreciate good tequila.

On the rocks.

Lime.

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…

  1. Like everything in life, use the best, high-quality ingredients you can find.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Enjoy!
