    Margaritas!

    I'm making this post while slightly buzzed on Margaritas and I want to know what is your favorite margarita recipe? Please include specific brands of tequilla and other ingredients. Here is my current favorite:

    2 oz Cuervo Traditional Tequilla
    1 oz Cointreau
    1 oz Fresh lime juice
    1 pinch ultra-fine sugar
    1 pinch Kosher Salt

    Mix all ingredients in a shaker and skake well. Pour into a salt-rimmed glass over ice. Enjoy!

    2oz Patron Silver
    1oz Cointreau
    1oz fresh squeezed lime juice
    splash of Gran Marinier
    shake with ice, pour into glass with salted rim

    Some people find them a little too tart, so a little extra Gran Marinier and a bit of fresh squeezed orange juice (1/4 orange or so) tends to sweeten it up just a little for them. I've found a silver tequila is much better for basic margaritas like this, and the quality of it does make a significant difference.

    Tablespoon Honey
    2oz Tequila
    1oz Grand Marnier
    1/2oz Triple Sec or Cointreau
    Lime to taste, ice

    Try this one with honey, which I add first as it needs to be dissolved before serving. The quantity of lime juice and ice depends on who I'm serving it to.
