That Fleeting Margarita, Part I

MagueybarrilWhen the weather warms up, the Doctor and I really enjoy a good Margarita to help cool off.  The problem is that there are a shocking number of ways to mix a margarita, and they aren’t all equal.  One night the Doctor and I sat down and mixed several variations to try and determine which ratios made the best drink for our tastes, and it worked wonderfully… we found a great blend we loved!

Unfortunately, the margarita testing left us too inebriated to properly record that ratio.  When the next day came we couldn’t find the notes of our successful blend anywhere.  Since then we have attempted to be a bit more careful about recording our Margarita ingredient ratios, in hopes of getting our version figured out for good next time.

Tonight we went with a listing we found in Liquid Intelligence by Dave Arnold, although we tweaked it a bit to fit our available supplies. We consider it a success, worth recording:

  • 2 oz Tequila (Kirkland Reposado)
  • 3/4 oz Lime Juice (Fresh squeezed!)
  • 3/4 oz Triple Sec (Clear Spring from Costco)
  • 1/4 oz Simple Syrup (1 part agave syrup to 2 parts water)
  • Salted Rim
