Last night we made our best margs of the season. Note the technicality: made and not drank. We are lucky enough to live across the street from Martha, maker of the world’s best margaritas, so we happily drink superb margs throughout the year. One of these days I’ll get Martha drunk enough to share her magic mojo. But until then, here’s second best:
Foodinista’s Go-to Marg
Makes 4 stiff drinks
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1 cup Don Julio blanco tequila
1/2 cup triple sec (or better yet – 1/4 cup triple sec; 1/4 cup Grand Marnier)
Sprinkle salt onto a small plate. Take a juiced lime peel and rub around rims of glasses, dip glass rims in salt. Pour lime juice, tequila, and orange liqueur in a shaker full of ice. Shake and strain into salt-rimmed glasses.
