Happy Cinco de Mayo! Doesn't this margarita look great! It's making me thirsty. For all of you who have time today to make yourself a little treat, I will leave you with this recipe from Williams-Sonoma, enjoy!
3 oz. tequila blanco
1 oz. Cointreau or triple sec
1 oz. fresh lime juice
1 cup coarsely cracked ice
Coarse sea salt for coating rims of glasses
Several lime wedges
In a cocktail shaker or a jar with a lid, combine the tequila, Cointreau, lime juice and ice. Shake 12 to 15 times. Remember, the more you shake, the more the ice will diffuse into the drink.
Spread salt on a small, flat plate. Moisten the rims of two 6-oz. glasses, preferably long-stemmed, with the lime wedges and invert onto the plate of salt, then shake off any excess. Strain the margarita mixture into the glasses and serve immediately.
