Margarita 101

The Margarita is one of those classic, year-round drinks here in South Texas and it tends to sound better and better when the temperatures are on the rise. So we’ve decided to share with you a traditional Margarita Recipe, San Antonio style. Equal parts smooth, salty, sweet, and sour, this drink is delicious and refreshing. We like them best down here without all the concentrated syrup and fruity flavorings- just back to the basics. 

  Ingredients  {Makes 1 margarita}
  • 2 shots tequila
  • 2 shots freshly squeezed lime juice 
  • 2 shots Controy Licor de Naranjas {Orange Liquer for a subtle sweetness} or Triple Sec 
  • Big scoop of ice 

What you need:

What You’ll Do:

For Margaritas on the Rocks:  If you like your ‘ritas’ on the rocks, add all the contents to a shaker and shake away. Pour over ice and garnish with a wedge of lime. 
For Frozen Margaritas: If you like your ‘ritas’ frozen you will add all the contents to a bar blender and let it mix until the ice is in small flakes and the drink is at a slushy consistency.   Now, raise your glass and as they in Spanish: !Salud!
