Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Classic Margarita

Salt, for rimming the glass (optional)
2 ounces tequila (blanco, 100 percent agave)
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 ounce Cointreau (not Triple Sec)
1/2 ounce Grand Marnier

A classic margarita is more than just sweet & sour mix and tequila over ice. It’s simple and effective. Especially when using fresh ingredients and pure agave tequila.

fresh lime juice is key.
Start by wetting the rim of your glass and putting salt around it. Next, mix all the ingredients except for the Grand Marnier, together in a shaker and pour over ice. Then pour the Grand Marnier on top of the drink and let it float there. Garnish with a sprig of lime and a straw. ¡p├ísatelo bien!
