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
- 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.
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.)
