I mixed up these margaritas for a fun, casual happy hour at home. I gave Mum the choice between a bourbon or tequila based cocktail, and it wasn’t a surprise when she chose the tequila, as when she is here in town we dine frequently at our local Mexican restaurant, predominantly because of their frozen Margaritas.
THE ST. RITA
3 cups ice
2 ounces blanco tequila
1 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice
1 ounce St. Germain
1/2 ounce triple sec
Garnish – lime slice
If desired, rub rim of glass with lime wedge and dip rim of glass in salt to coat.
In a cocktail shaker, combine ice, tequila, lime juice, St. Germain and triple sec.
Shake vigorously for 20 to 30 seconds. Strain mixture into prepared glass, garnish with lime slice.
