Delicious Twist On A ClassicMargaritas are one of my favorite drinks! For my birthday weekend in Palm Springs, Foodbuzz selected my meal as one of 24 meals for their 24,24,24 sponsored event and Margaritas were the drink of choice! Read the original post HERE.
These margaritas are special because they are made one at a time, with fresh ingredients, and feature a fiery chili-salt rim! If you are looking to make a large batch of margaritas, check out this great MARGARITA RECIPE...it's perfect for parties!
IngredientsRecipe below makes one Margarita
1/3 cup Patron Tequila (don't even bother using the cheap stuff!)
1/4 cup triple sec
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tbls simple syrup
1 slice orange
1 slice lime
1/2 cup chili-salt (this can be found in latin/mexican markets. You can also make your own by combining cayenne pepper and kosher salt.)
DirectionsTake a slice of lime and rub it along the rim of an old fashioned cocktail glass. Place the chili-salt on a saucer plate and spread out. Take the cocktail glass and flip it over so that the rim is facing down and lightly tap the rim of the glass on to the chili-salt, making sure the rim gets completely covered.
Next, place an orange and lime slice in the bottom of the glass, fill with ice, and with a spoon or muddler, mash the slices to release their juices. Add remaining ingredients and top off with water. Enjoy! The ingredients can be adjusted according to your taste...add more simple syrup if you like them sweeter, more lime juice if you like them tart, etc. etc.
