Margaritas on the Rocks

Here’s another delicious summer-inspired recipe: Margaritas!  I never liked tequila very much until our neighbors, Jack and Julie, invited us over for a BBQ last summer.  While we chatted Jack whipped (well, shook) up some wonderful margaritas and served them to us in salt-rimmed glasses.  What a great summer drink!  Afterwards we looked for our own margarita recipe and came up with these.  I can’t remember exactly where I found the recipe online but it may have been from the Nellie and Joe’s Key Lime Juice web site…

Margaritas on the Rocks  (makes 2 drinks)

You will need…
5 oz. Silver Tequila
1.5 oz. Triple Sec
3.5 oz. Lime Juice (you can juice fresh limes or just use Nellie & Joe’s Key Lime Juice)
3.5 oz. Simple Syrup (this is 1/2 part sugar and 1/2 part water; boil them together and allow to cool.  I keep a bottle of homemade SS in the fridge.)
Lime Wedge, to garnish
Salt for Glass Rims, if desired

Directions:
Pour the liquid ingredients in a shaker with a few ice cubes.  Shake thoroughly and pour into glasses filled with ice (and rimmed in salt if desired).  Garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy!
