It's all about the limes folks....

Always use key limes not those big hard-skinned green jobs that they try to push at the super market.

W/O the right limes, it's just another way to get drunk.

Jose Cuervo is some sort of mutabooze with caramel coloring added and it tastes awful for any purpose. There is a benefit at hand. You can add a shitload more good tequila to a marg before it starts tasting boozy.

Best mix for it is even amounts of fresh squeezed lemon, lime and orange juice and simple syrup to taste. Simple syrup is pretty much a cup of water and a cup of sugar warmed until the sugar disappears, then cooled back to room temperature.

You can totally get away with the simple syrup, roses lime juice and a splash of some good orange juice.

Grand Marnier or triple sec can be very nice, but spendy.

And now we know why I own one of those big $20 stainless steel one-armed kachunker citrus squeezers.
How much tequila with my even amounts of fresh squeezed lemon, lime and orange juice and simple syrup to taste? 1/1/1/1? blend in ice?

Use CFB's recipe; no mixes. Don't blend with ice - this isn't a slushy. Serve on the rocks with salt on rim. While you're at it, fix me one!

I add booze until people taste it and scrunch their face up and mutter "JESUS!".

My actual method is to fill a glass half full with ice cubes, pour in the booze until the ice is just covered, then add the mix, stir.

  • Add it to a cocktail shaker and shake well

Welcome to Hornitostequila.com

Hornitos Reposado is smooth enough to sip straight. It is affordable. Much better than a mixed (51% agave) tequila.

Guess what I am having right now?

A good sipping tequila is Don Julio Aņejo. So is El Tesoro Aņejo.
"Right On!" This has been my favorite recipe for years. (I use ice cubes. however.)

The last time I had a margarita was the first time I had a margarita. That was on December 31, 1967 (or January 1, 1968 ). Actually, they were great so I had seven of them and then started on salty dogs and bloody Marys (I think? for SOME reason my memory of that New Year's Eve is a little hazy). What a party!!!

I must have rid myself of that desire, or got something or other out of my system. I don't drink at all any more (not even wine).

Little bit of red wine is good for the heart

Oh, I also remember having my first martini at that party. I thought it was horrid (but my capability to discriminate between good and horrid may have been somewhat impaired at that point! ) Tell me they don't party in Kaimuki!

In my experience, a lot of red wine has been good for a variety of body parts.

Oh how tiring to read this thread, such complications.

Just give me a dark beer and a bottle opener.

Ah, the simple life.

Last night I dreamed I drank the world's biggest margarita. This morning there was salt on the toilet seat. Glad I didn't eat the worm...
