As if there weren’t enough reasons to drink, National Margarita Day is quickly approaching. The margarita is already the most-consumed cocktail in America, but on February 22nd, we’ll give it some more recognition.
If you need tequila inspiration, Avion Silver Tequila and Partida Reposado Tequila are both good options that can be consumed neat or mixed into a margarita. And for the margarita itself, consider skipping the sugary sweet and sour mix and opting for the traditional trio of tequila, Cointreau and fresh lime juice. A 3:2:1 ratio usually does the trick.
1 1/2 ounces tequila
1 ounce Cointreau
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
Shake all ingredients with ice, then strain into a cocktail glass. Or, strain over fresh ice into a rocks glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.
