How I am just finding out about this amazing “holiday” is beyond me! But what the heck, let’s celebrate. It’s NATIONAL MARGARITA DAY (aiye aiye!!)!
If you live in the Baltimore area then you should most definitely head over to Miguel’s in Locust Point and experience one of their MANY delicious options. While you’re there I suggest ordering some guacamole. Trust me, do it.
Another favorite spot of mine (and most people I know) is Nacho Mama’s in Canton. Aside from the margarita’s being yummy, they are served in a hubcap (yes, a hubcap), perfect for sharing!
Looking to stay in and just enjoy one from the comfort of your own couch? Whip up one yourself, you can even branch out from the traditional margarita with one of these!
- Ice cubes
- 3 ounces tequila
- 2 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1 ounce Simple Syrup, recipe follows
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon orange liqueur
- 1 tablespoon Lime-salt-sugar, recipe follows
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
- Add tequila, lime juice, and Simple Syrup.
- Cover and shake until mixed and chilled, about 30 seconds. (In general, the drink is ready by the time the shaker mists up.)
- Place Lime-salt-sugar on a plate. Press the rim of a chilled rocks or wine glass into the mixture to rim the edge.
- Strain margarita into the glass.
- 2 cups ice
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 cup blueberry nectar
- 1/4 cup seltzer
- 2 tablespoons frozen limeade
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 3 ounces tequila, optional
- 1 lime wedge
- Coarse salt
- Combine ice, blueberries, blueberry nectar, seltzer, limeade, lime juice and tequila in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Rub rim of 2 glasses with lime wedge and dip in salt.
- Divide the margarita between the prepared glasses and serve.
- 1 part Bols Strawberry Liqueur
- 2 parts Milagro silver tequila
- 1 part fresh squeezed lime juice
- 1/4 part simple syrup or agave nectar
- Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into an ice-filled, chilled glass.
- Garnish with a lime wedge.
And of course, since we did post a wednesday weekly squeeze today I will honor that with the Skinny Girl Margarita by Bethenny Frankel (love her!).
Please drink responsibly.
