Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

May 5, 2010

It’s Cinco de Mayo! It’s getting close to that time of year where weekends will slowly start to fill up with bbq’s and sunny day gatherings. We had a particularly nice day here in Antigua and the man of the house decided it was high time he pulled out his margarita skills and useĀ  our gifted bottle of Gusano Rojo (yes, that is a worm at the bottom of the bottle of mezcal). The key to a good margarita you ask? Keep it simple and with some quality tequila. In our home, we try to use as many fresh ingredients as possible and this goes for drinks as well.

This recipe will make about 4 drinks. Just play around with the quantities until you get your desired taste. First, gather some limes and oranges for a nice, fresh squeeze. If you ‘stick a fork in it’ (what a great phrase for a recipe) while squeezing, you will get the most juice out of your citrus fruits.

In a blender, add ice, lime juice, orange juice and taquilla (some people might add sugar). Wet the rim of the glass and dip into a bowl of nice sea salt.

Pour in your blended (and somewhat chunky) mixture and voila! It’s that simple.
