A salt-rimmed glass filled with sweet citrus liquid is my idea of the perfect traditional drink!
Margaritas are another common “chick drink,” but I know men love ‘em too--even if they don’t always admit it!
Whether it’s served blended or over ice, it’s the ideal concoction to serve at a summer BBQ or for a girls’ night in.
Have fun adding your own twist to it by adding fruit flavors!
Salt, for rimming the glass (optional)
1 1/2 ounces tequila (blanco, 100 percent agave)
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1/2 ounce Cointreau (not Triple Sec)
If using salt, place in a shallow dish.
Moisten the rim of a rocks glass with a dampened paper towel, then dip in salt.
Fill the glass with ice;
add tequila, lime juice, and Cointreau;
and stir a few times until chilled.
