Margarita drink recipes for your next party or cookout


Here's a couple of Margarita Drink Recipes I think are just perfect for your next cookout. Of course you really don't need a cookout to enjoy these drinks, but they sure do complement it!

Enjoy!


Basic Margarita Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 Ounce Tequila
  • 1 Ounce Lime Juice
  • 1 Fresh Lime
  • Jose Cuervo Margarita Salt (or kosher salt)

Directions:

Combine 1-ounce tequila, 1-ounce fresh lime juice, and one ounce Cointreau in a cocktail shaker with lots of ice. Shake well. Take a shallow dish and pour Jose Cuervo Margarita Salt (or kosher salt) all around the dish. Take lime and rub the rim of your glass and then turn upside down and place in bed of salt, rotating slowly, making sure to cover the complete rim evenly. Strain liquid into a salt-rimmed glass and garnish with lime.

Hint:

If you are going to use fresh limes, cut them in half and place them in the microwave for 20 - 40 seconds. This makes the juice easier to extract.

Cooks Notes:

My favorite Tequila now for drinks or shots is Corzo Silver (naturally 100% De Agave) or Don Alvaro Blanco, when available. It is moderately priced and quite tasty. No old school taste.
