Hello, gentle readers. My name is Kat and I’m a boozeaholic. I’m addicted to boozeahol. And why wouldn’t I be, dammit? Booze is DELICIOUS. Or rather, DELICIOSO. Because today we’re making margaritas! From scratch! And you know why? Because it’s HOT AS BALLS out there right now, and I could really go for a nice cold margarita. Or two, for which you’ll need:
The juice of 3 limes
6 ounces of tequila
2 ounces of triple sec or Cointreau
First up, your PRO TIP of the day: If you zap your whole limes in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds, you’ll be able to extract waaaaaaaay more lime juice out of them.
Mix together all that stuff I said you’ll need.
Muddle some fruit in the bottom of your chosen drink receptacle and salt the rim (but not in that order, and only if you like).
Divide your boozy concoction between the two glasses, give it a stir to incorporate your optional fruit, and fill ’er up with ice.
Dude, margaritas! (Someone bring me one now please kthxbai.)
