Thirsty Thursday: The Classic Margarita Recipe

The Classic Margarita

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.

9 days to go — we’ve already begun our countdown to Cinco de Mayo. And the key to a great fiesta is a freshly made margarita. There’s something about salted rims that invites us to plunge happily into glasses filled to the brim with tequila, sugar and lime. Get ready for your Cinco de Mayo celebration by trying your hand at a classic and perfectly balanced margarita.

Bottoms up, folks.

    This looks like a great classic margarita recipe! I'm stealing this one for the next taco night.

    hi,
    This dish margarita is very fine to drink, its colour with sugar on the sides is very much interesting to drink. It can be given in a cooler manner.

    Oh, I love Margarita on a fine Sunday morning! But if I'll make one, I'll sure I'll add some hibiscus tea. :P Has anyone tried that?
