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!

Ingredients:

  • 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
  • ice

Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. Add the water, tequila, agave, and stir. Taste and see if you need to make tweaks.
  3. If desired, strain mixture to remove any lime pulp, although I don’t bother.
  4. Add ice generously, and stir or shake (by putting another cup over the top).
  5. Serve immediately. Recipe is intended for those whom alcohol use is legal, done responsibly, and is appropriate.
