One of my favorite drinks to enjoy is a Margarita. But a lot of people make margaritas that are either too sweet or too sour. This can leave you with a little heart-burn type feeling that I hate. And it’s all because of that store-bough mix.
To make a perfect margarita, it’s not too hard… and it’s taken me a lot of bad batches to come up with the perfect margarita recipe that you could drink all night.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 oz of Tequila
- 1 oz of Grand Mariner
- 1 oz of Fresh Lime Juice
- 1 oz Rose’s lime juice
- Splash of Corona Beer (any Mexican beer can be used)
- Coarse Salt for the glasses
This recipe is one that I use in ancillary Margarita competitions – and won a few times with.
Start with a shaker filled with ice and measure out 2 oz of Tequila. I use Don Julio Reposado or Patron Reposado.. and I reserve the silver for taking shots.
Pour the tequila over the ice and then measure 1 oz of Grand Mariner and pour into the shaker.
Next squeeze a few of limes and collect the juice. Make sure you get the seeds out if you didn’t while squeezing. Add 1 oz of Fresh Lime Juice and 1 oz of Rose’s Lime Juice to the shaker.
Now your asking me what’s the beer for? Well you add a splash of Corona, put the top on the shaker, and give it a good shaking. Pour the mixture into a salt rimmed Margarita glass and enjoy. Now you’ve got a great tasting margarita without that cheap sweet and sour taste.
