A closer look at how to make a "perfect" margarita
National Margarita Day, Cinco de Mayo, any average Friday … you have every excuse to shake up something sweet and sour: a margarita. Our friends at Heartland Weekend met with the co-owner of El Sol to find out how they make a “perfect” margarita.
Antonio Olivarez says the recipe is simple but good.
The key: keep it fresh.
The Perfect Margarita
Shot and a half of Tequila
Half a shot of Triple Sec
Half a shot of Grand Marnier
2 shots of Sweet and Sour Mix
How to make it:
Grind a few slices of the lime and orange in the bottom of your shaker.
Combine the liqueur with the sweet and sour mix.
Add in a hearty scoop of ice.
Shake it real good.
Pour and enjoy!
If you are feeling really adventurous, you might even try a chocolate margarita.
