PHOTOS AND RECIPE BY ERIKA FOLLANSBEE
If you’re not into margaritas made with pre-made “margarita mix – just add tequila!” then this is the recipe for you. This margarita is tart, limey, and traditionally made with tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. And that’s it! This recipe may not be for everyone, but for those who like it puckery tart, this one’s for you!
- ¾ cup fresh squeezed lime juice
- 4.5 oz silver tequila
- 1.5 oz triple sec
- agave nectar, to taste
- coarse salt
- Pour salt into a saucer, and rub cut lime around the rims of two glasses. Place upside down in the salt to stick.
- Combine tequila, lime juice, and triple sec with ice cubes into a shaker and shake vigorously.
- Pour into the two glasses (over ice if desired) and stir in agave nectar to taste.
