      Sip of the Month: HC Margarita

      Sip of the Month: HC Margarita

      All you really need are three basic ingredients to make the best margarita recipe ever. We've included a few optional flourishes 'cause we're CELEBRATING.

       

      HC MARGARITA
      Serves 1

      INGREDIENTS
      1 1/2 ounces silver tequila
      1 ounce orange liqueur (Cointreau, Grand Marnier or Triple Sec)
      3/4 ounce freshly-squeezed lime juice
      Ice
      Optional Sweetener: agave nectar or simple syrup, to taste
      Optional: lime wedge and coarse salt for rimming the glass


      FOR A PITCHER OF MARGARITAS
      Makes 16 SERVINGS

      3 cups silver tequila
      2 cups orange liqueur (Cointreau, Grand Marnier or Triple Sec)
      1 1/2 cups freshly-squeezed lime juice
      Ice
      Optional Sweetener: agave nectar or simple syrup, to taste
      Optional: lime wedges and coarse salt for rimming the glasses

       

      METHOD
      If you would like salt-rimmed glasses, begin by running a lime slice (the juicy part) around the top rim of a glass.  Fill a shallow bowl with salt, and dip the rim in the salt until it is covered with your desired amount of salt.  Set aside.

      Add tequila, orange liqueur and lime juice to a cocktail shaker, and shake or stir until combined.  Taste, and if you would like the margarita to be sweeter, stir in a half teaspoon of agave or simple syrup at a time until the mix reaches your desired level of sweetness.

      Fill glass with ice.  Pour in the margarita mixture over the rocks.  Serve immediately, garnished with an extra lime wedge if desired.
