The Busy Giffs: Simple Margaritas

Simple Margaritas

Monday was my first day back at work for the new school year, but really, summer doesn't end until Labor Day weekend ends in my mind. I love my job and my students so I don't mind going back to work, but I'll never miss the chance to cheers the summer before saying good bye.

Summer is synonymous with margaritas in my mind. Not much is better than a summer night by the fire with a margarita in hand. Too often, margaritas get muddled by people trying to turn it into too much. I personally love the crisp, tart flavor of a barely sweetened margarita.
My homemade ones use only a few ingredients and are as good, if not better than than ones I order when I go out.


Ingredients

1 nip of Grand Marnier
2 nips of tequila (I prefer Patron)
Juice of 4 limes
2 oz lemonade (I like Simply Lemonade)
salt for the rim
cut limes for garnish

In 2 cup liquid measuring, stir together the the Grand Marnier, tequila, lime juice, and lemonade.
Pour salt onto a shallow plate. Rim the edge of each glass with a lime wedge, and dip in salt. Fill the glass with ice. Pour margarita mixture into each glass. Garnish with a lime slice and Enjoy!

Many people prefer to use a simple syrup instead of lemonade but I prefer the tangy tartness of the lemonade.

Bottoms up!


xo, Heather
