We were talking this morning on about foods that have a ton of sugar in them. Margaritas came up and EVERYBODY still loves them. I wanted to repost a recipe I found that changed my life. Here you go!
I struggled with making the perfect margarita for a long time. What mix do I use? How much tequila? Blended or on-the-rocks? How can a drink so simple become so complicated so quickly?Then I watched a friend of mine knock out a half-dozen of the tastiest margaritas I've ever had in the dirt parking lot at Shoreline before a concert. UPDATE: A bartender friend of mine turned me on to cutting the lime juice with a bit of pineapple juice if you have it. Genius.
No blender. No mix. 4-5 ingredients.You're welcome.
