Margarita de Chris

Now that summer is presumably here to stay, Chris has been mixing up summery cocktails. While I am partial to his excellent mojitos, he really enjoys a homemade margarita.  Freshly squeezed limes paired with Mexican tequila remind so many people of warm breezes and carefree afternoons.

Unfortunately, I most definitely cannot drink margaritas.  Thanks to one awful night freshman year of college, tequila and I are no longer on speaking terms.  Even the smell of it makes me nauseous. Yack!

So, even though I’ve never had so much as a sip of Chris’ margarita, I am sharing it here because he promises me it is extra delicious.

Margarita de Chris

2 shots tequila

1 shot triple sec (our favorite brand of orange liqueur is Controy from Mexico, but it is very hard to find in the US – sniff, sniff)

2 shots freshly squeezed lime juice

Combine all ingredients with lots of ice in a cocktail shaker.  Shake very, very well.

Add ice to a tall glass and pour in the margarita. Enjoy!
