    Sorry title should have been Margarita.



    For your Memorial weekend pleasure. No headache guaranteed (well almost )


    Follow the instructions specifically for a perfect Margarita with no prepared mix.
    2 oz 100% Agave Tequila
    3/4 oz Cointreau
    1/2 oz Agave nectar
    1oz fresh lime juice

    Shake hard in a cocktail shaker for 20 seconds and strain over fresh ice into a rocks glass.
    Garnish with a limewheel.

    Muy autentico, muy deliscioso

    8% alcohol, hahaha!
    That is not a Margarita. Enough of them might give a buzz and a large sugar high. (headache). :D

    I rarely drink margaritas anymore, and I make a great Golden Margarita, much like Threetango's recipe with Gran Marnier instead of Cointeau. However, since I found Espolon Reposado tequila there is no reason to bastardize the smooth, clean flavor with all the frills.

    Really, if you can find this, try it.

    I have no vested interest in the success of these guys, only think that it's the best tequila I've ever had.

    Quite frankly, I want to know what the hell it is. I'm sure its a lime malt beverage, but what is really in it?
