Recipe of the month: Margarita
Ah, a beautiful day of boating on a Lake County summer day. What could be more perfect? Adding a margarita into the scenario. Crisp, citrusy with a touch of sweetness, a sunny margarita is the perfect summer drink. There are pre-made mixes out there. But why bother? A made-from-scratch margarita is superior in every way. And just as simple to make. You can also prepare a batch of margaritas ahead of time. To avoid diluting, don’t add ice until you’re ready to serve. And remember, don’t drink and drive.
2 ounces blanco tequila
Juice of 1 whole lime
½ ounce triple sec, preferably Cointreau
Salt for rim (optional)
Lime wedge, for garnish
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add tequila, lime juice and triple sec. Shake. Pour, with the ice, into a polycarbonate glass (salt rim first if you like). Garnish with wedge of lime.
