The Mexican ‘daisy’ – originally tequila, citrus and grenadine served over shaved ice – translates to margarita, has featured in tequila ads since the 1940’s. The perfectly balanced cocktail, made in the traditional way, uses:
Garnish: Salt rim
Step 1. Combine all ingredients
Step 2. Shake and strain into glass
Step 3. Garnish with salt and a lime wheel
Tip: Taste test. The margarita needs to be balanced, limes and salt can vary – so try a couple of different ways to see what you like best. We’ve used Cointreau, but you may want to try Grand Marnier.
We’ve used quality Fortaleza Tequila, 100 Blue Agave, oven-roasted and stone crushed the traditional way. Yes, you can taste the difference.
