Countdown to Cinco de Mayo : Mexican Margaritas

margaritaEveryone knows that margaritas are a great way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, and here’s tasty and authentic recipe. You’ll need 2 ounces of tequila, an ounce of freshly squeezed lime juice, ¾ of an ounce of agave nectar (or you can replace this with half an ounce of simple syrup), and ¾ of an ounce of chilled water. You’ll shake these ingredients up with ice and then strain the liquid into a chilled glass filled with ice. You can garnish the cup with a wedge of lime. And don’t forget to coat the rim of the cup with salt before filling. To do so, simply moisten the rim and dip it into a dish of kosher salt.
