On this past cold and windy Friday night, my cousin, Andrea, and her husband, Chris, invited my boyfriend, Ryan, and myself over for a Mexican theme night! Trying to stay on track, we decided to make it a healthy Mexican night. While Andrea and Chris prepared an AMAZING abundance of food, I was in charge of preparing the cocktails. I found a recipe for a 3 ingredient margarita and it did not disappoint. I can honestly say from now on whenever I make margaritas I will be using this recipe! Between the food, music and drinks, the night was a perfect way to bring Mexico to New York!
- 1 to 1 1/2 shots lime juice (1 shot glass equals 1/4 cup liquid)
- 2 shots water
- 1 to 2 shots tequila
- 1/2 to 1 shot agave nectar, or to taste
- Over a large cup, squeeze limes, about 2 medium/large, ripe limes. Tip – Paler green limes and those with yellow spots, and those with thin skin are juicier than darker-skinned limes or those with thicker skin. Medium/large limes seem to release their juice easier than small limes.
- Add the water, tequila, agave, and stir. Taste and see if you need to make tweaks.
- If desired, strain mixture to remove any lime pulp, although I don’t bother.
- Add ice generously, and stir or shake (by putting another cup over the top).
- Serve immediately. Recipe is intended for those whom alcohol use is legal, done responsibly, and is appropriate.
