Who’s this “Rose” you speak of, and why is she green?

I’m thinking maybe it’s envy, as with this dead-simple margarita recipe, you’ll never need bottled “lime juice” again.

I call it “à la Don” ’cause that’s who I got it from. Frankly, I don’t know why anyone does it any other way.

Margaritas à la Don

Serves 4
—buffalo’s dad

    • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
    • 1/3 cup sugar

    Juice limes, add sugar.

    • 1 cup ice

    Crush ice in blender, add lime juice and sugar, mix.

    • 2/3 cup tequila (reposado or silver, not añejo)
    • 1/3 cup Grand Marnier

    Combine tequila and Grand Marnier. Add to mix, blend. Taste and adjust ingredients.

    • salt

    Serve in glasses with salted rims.

See, now, wasn’t that easy? Didn’t that taste a hell of a lot better than those glow-in-the-dark bar margaritas?

You can thank me later, once you’ve picked yourself up off the floor. (Oh, yeah, be careful with these suckers: they’re pretty strong.)
