Happy Hour @ 1102

National Margarita Day

Well, who knew ,  (Besides my BFF and her brain full of useless information ), that Wednesday February 22nd was National Margarita Day.   Not like you need a special time to have a good Margarita.  But I will be putting it on my calendar, to remind me of this classic cocktail at least once a year.

So this week’s Happy Hour @ 1102 Cocktail is the Margarita – Enjoy!

Classic Margartia

INGREDIENTS

  • Salt, for rimming the glass (optional)
  • Ice
  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila (blanco, 100 percent agave)
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce Cointreau (not Triple Sec)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. If using salt, place in a shallow dish. Moisten the rim of a margarita glass with the juice of  a lime wedge.  Then dip in salt.
  2. Fill a shaker with ice; add tequila, lime juice, and Cointreau; shake a few times until chilled.  Pour in salt rimmed glass and serve immediately.
