A Healthy Margarita? Try the Original.

Whenever I see a bad margarita happening, Montell Jordans' "This Is How We Do It" starts playing in my head and I imagine, for a second, that I could change things.

Everyone has their own margarita recipe. Especially around Cinco de Mayo. Suddenly we're adding all kinds of fruit and syrup and blending stuff and trying to make a special margarita or a healthier, low-calorie drink, but what is wrong with the original? Nothing. It's not really that bad for you. It's low calorie if you use a proper-sized glass. And it tastes better than everything else. Plus, it's so easy...

Rather than vent further, I'll  just show you.



The Original Margarita

1.5 oz tequila (100% agave, but no need to go too $$)
1 oz Cointreau
1/2 oz lime
ice

Shake and double strain.

*Garnish with a wedge of lime.

*Salt is optional, but use sea salt instead of table salt. Salt will counteract bitterness of the lime. Keep it to 1/8th inch rim.

*No sugar. It's already a sweet drink.
