You Are Now Ready for Cinco de Mayo: Relax Your Mind Margarita
April 24, 2016 11 Comments
You do not need a big blended frothy margarita to enjoy Cinco do Mayo.
You do need fresh limes. I say this because I went to a dive bar recently and ordered a margarita. My friend looked at me as if I was insane because she knew that I had high standards.
My standard is that the juice involved in the margarita must be fresh lime juice. Anything else (syrup from a bottle for example) tastes like crappy Hawaiian punch or something else undrinkable.
I pronounced the dive bar margarita “disgusting” and tried to get something else (I attempted to return a drink). The older female bartender assured me that I was not going to get anything since she served me what I had asked for.
My friend thought this was hilarious.
Make your own margarita with lime juice and you will NEVER buy a margarita in a dive bar again.

Relax Your Mind Margarita Recipe
You can relax your mind because you just saved yourself a bunch of calories.
1 ½ ounces of tequila
2 teaspoons agave syrup
kosher salt (optional)
Juice the lime half in a hand juicer and pour into a cocktail shaker or glass. Add the tequila, agave syrup, and ice cubes and mix well.
Optional: If you like salt on the rim of your glass, first run a wedge of lime along the rim. Pour salt into a small dish and rub the rim of the glass in the salt. Be sure to pour the margarita into the center of the glass.
