I'm always asked to bring the same three things to a dinner party; mango salsa, guacamole, and a pitcher of my margaritas. I have much more in my repertoire but people always go crazy for these simple items. Truthfully all three of them are the easiest things I make and the difference between my version, and what people are accustom to, is that I use only simple natural ingredients. I thought I would share my margarita 'recipe' with the masses. I made this up all on my own
recipe makes two large drinks at my house, might make four at yours. (Remember I have FOUR kids.)
A cocktail shaker (I chill mine)
3 or 4 limes
Fill your chilled cocktail shaker 3/4 of the way up with ice. Next add four counts of Patron. (4 counts is a fancy way of saying pour it out and count 1...2...3...4.) I told you it was fancy. Now add three counts of Cointreau. Then put in one squeeze of agave nectar, no this isn't a joke, this is seriously how I measure. Squeeze the juice from your 3 or 4 limes and add whatever amount of juice you get to your shaker. Finally, I add whatever amount of Simply Limeade™ I need to fill the shaker to the right level before shaking. This last tip is important. SHAKE a lot. ENJOY!
Note: Because I'm lame I have not figured out how to make this in large pitcher quantity and come out right. Therefore when I am making a pitcher or two to take to a gathering I make the recipe individually and then pour each into a pitcher. Now that's Love. Did you hear that friends?
*Disclaimer: These margaritas will ruin you and you will never be able to order a 'rita at a bar or restaurant for they will make you gag. True story.
