A Perfect Margarita

I can't for the life of me understand why people use store-bought margarita mix, especially since a perfect margarita is so simple to make without it. You only need three ingredients:

  1. Reposado or Anejo Tequila (my favorite is Cabo Wabo Reposado)
  2. Triple Sec (use 60 proof Hiram Walker instead of 40 proof DeKuypers)
  3. Limes (organic limes are highly recommended because they have a lot more juice)

Just put some ice in a shaker, add 1.5oz tequila, 1.5oz triple sec, and the juice of 1 whole lime. Shake it until it's ice cold, and strain in to a martini glass. Done! Ahhhh… sip the perfection.

Note: if you want to make a Waborita, just add a splash of Blue Curacao to the martini glass.
