THE BEST MARGARITA (s) YOU'LL EVER HAVE (maybe)
I detest margaritas at places like Friday's and Applebees (and, yes, I do eat at these establishments from time to time). The rotten mix (usually made with more orange juice than anything else) tastes musty and gross. Here are three versions I love and make at home on hot, summer weekend days..and on Cinco De Mayo:
1.) We love clear tequila (seems to help with the following days recovery) and sometimes I'll just add a splash of SIMPLY LIME juice bought at the grocery store.
2.) If you are feeling a bit more adventurous, pick up some fresh limes (a bit hard to find these days with the shortage) and agave syrup. In a cocktail shaker I mix tequila, a few squirts of agave and fresh lime juice with ice. Shake until you can't shake any more and enjoy.
3.) On really hot summer days I love grabbing the Bacardi frozen mix in the freezer section of the grocery store. I toss that in a blender and add one can of tequila. While I don't usually love frozen margaritas, this is one for the books!
