There are days when you open your eyes and really, really want to choose chaos. But since you’re too pretty to go to prison, choose a fine, adult beverage to take the edge off.
Plus, you don’t really look good in stripes.
Best Simple Margarita
*recipe courtesy of acouplecooks.com
1 ½ ounces (3 tablespoons) tequila blanco or reposado*
1 ounce (2 tablespoons) Cointreau (or Triple Sec)
¾ ounce (1 ½ tablespoons) fresh lime juice
Kosher salt or flaky sea salt, for the rim
For the garnish: Lime wedge
Cut a notch in a lime wedge, then run the lime around the rim of a glass. Dip the edge of the rim into a plate of salt (or for a festive look, use our Margarita Salt).
Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with 4 ice cubes and shake until cold.
Strain the margarita into the glass with the salted rim. Fill the glass with ice and serve.
Pitcher (8 servings): Place 1 ½ cups tequila, 1 cup Cointreau or Triple Sec, and ¾ cup lime juice in a pitcher. Add 3 handfuls ice and stir until cold.
