I think it's safe to say that I have been a lover of Mexican food my entire life. From fusion tacos with bulgogi and kimchi to the refried beans that vaguely resemble slop at the local dump-Mex place around the corner: I love it all. In fact, I have to make a deliberate effort to not fill my blog with all-Mexican all-the-time.
It's about time I let a little of my obsession with Mexican food ( and drink ... ) come through. I have roughly five (FIVE!!!!) different margarita recipes that are regulars in my kitchen, but this is my "basic" but fabulous go-to recipe, and seems like a great place to start. One thing that is a little odd about this recipe to some people is that I make it in a cocktail shaker. I love the way the shaker breaks up the ice and gives the margarita a just little bit of a froth at the top, but if you are decidedly anti-shaker, feel free to stir instead.
- 1 1/2 oz agave tequila
- 1 oz Grand Marnier®
- 1 oz lime juice
- 1 oz simple syrup
- salt optional
- In a cocktail shaker ( yeah, a cocktail shaker. That's how we roll. ), combine all ingredients over the ice.
- Shake vigorously.
- Pour ( ice and all ) into two margarita or rocks glasses and serve. Garnish with lime.
