Thirsty Thursday: A Drink for Margarita March


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.

Step into spring with a margarita before March is over, because we need to celebrate the alliteration that keeps us drinking: Margarita March. Since you can’t go wrong with a classic margarita, we’re going for Rick Bayless’ refreshing Top-of-the-Line Margarita. He ditches the sugary mix for orange liqueur and fresh lime juice to give this cocktail a well-balanced sweetness that doesn’t make you pucker. Just shake in some tequila, then pour it into cocktail glasses rimmed with flaky salt and celebrate Margarita March Madness.

Bottoms up, folks.

Top-of-the-Line Margarita

Recipe courtesy Rick Bayless

Ingredients:

  • Lime wedges
  • Coarse salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice, about 1 large lime
  • 1/4 cup silver 100 percent agave tequila
  • 1/4 cup orange liqueur
  • 1/2 cup coarsely cracked ice cubes

Directions:

Rub the rims of 2 martini glasses with a lime wedge, then dip the rims in a dish of course salt. Refrigerate the glasses if desired. In a shaker, combine the lime juice, tequila, and orange liqueur. Add ice and shake 10 to 15 seconds, then strain into the prepared glasses.
