It's that time of year again. I suppose I should say, "It's one of those times of year again." Time for a made-up holiday designed to sell a product... so here's my sales pitch. It's National Margarita Day. It's a Day in the middle of winter when we all agree that we've had just about enough cold, snowy weather and we need something bright, citrusy and delicious. It would seem that, at least here in New York, even Old Man Winter needed a break so let's mix up a margarita, raise our glasses and drink to an early Spring.
- 2 oz. Pueblo Viejo Blanco Tequila
- 1 oz. Cointreau
- .75 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
Combine above ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Top with ice and shake to chill and dilute. Strain into a rocks filled double old-fashioned glass with a salted rim. Garnish with a lime wedge.
