Not so long ago I was invited to a Mexican themed birthday party, and the welcome cocktail of choice? Margarita!
When I first came across this cocktail (many years ago) I didn't like it. At all. Too much tequila! But now, I'm actually starting to lean more and more towards it, perhaps because I no longer associate tequila with shot glasses and headache and perhaps because I switched the cheap-red-party-hat-tequila out with something a little more tasty and started using it for delicious drinks instead of just a piece of lime.
All in all I think that this is gonna be one of my go-to's this summer, especially the frozen version!
So let¨s get started!
You're gonna need:
A blender & ice (crushed)
3cl fresh limejuice
1cl suger syrup*
Lime fruit as garnish
And this is how we do it:
Mix all of the ingredients in the blender and add your ice - a little at a time in order to get the right consistency
Remember to taste is as you go - you can always add more sugar if the drink is tasteless.
Put a salt rim on the glas (make it stick by using a little lime juice on the edge of the glass)
Voila and now we're done - add a slice of lime as garnish and serve
* Sugar syrup is made easily by boiling one cup of water and mixing it with one cup of white sugar - cool it an keep it in a sealed bottle
