If you know anything about me, you know that I love margaritas (and tequila!) - they are my jam. Plain and simple. I don't, however, love when they are made with a bunch of sugar or the pre-made juices, but rather love making them myself nice and fresh! Give this one a try next time you need a cold one on the rocks:
Serving size: 2 margaritas
2 ounces silver tequila
1/2 ounce simple syrup (optional)
1-2 fresh limes
1-2 fresh lemons
chili-lime sea salt (got ours from Trader Joe's)
fresh lime wheel, for added garnish
If you prefer, dip the edges of your glass in water and then roll around in the sea salt, creating a salted rim. Fill the glass with ice and set aside.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the tequila, simple syrup and fresh lime + lemon juice. Cover and shake well for 20-30 seconds. Add in the club soda and stir to mix well. Pour into salt-rimmed glass. Garnish with an additional lime wheel. Enjoy!
