Thomas accompanied us to Mexico for our wedding so we decided he needed Margarita making supplies for his birthday. We started off with a bottle of 100% Agave Blanco Tequila. We still had some of our favorite Mexican triple sec left (Controy) but we'd already opened the bottle and thought it was tacky to gift that, so I dug around in my supply of liquor bottles that I'd saved and found a nice 375mL bottle. I cleaned the label off of it, stamped a new one, and used a funnel to fill it up with the perfect amount of Triple Sec to go with the Tequila.
Added a handful of limes and a matching card and had a fun and easy birthday gift that anyone who loves a good Margarita would love!
Our perfect Margarita recipe follows.
- 2 oz tequila
- 1 oz triple sec
- 1 oz fresh squeezed lime juice (no substitutes!!!)
- 1/4 oz agave syrup (simple syrup may be substituted, add more or less to taste)
Shake all ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a glass, half rimmed with salt. If ice is desired in the cocktail, add fresh, not the tired stuff in the shaker.
