Bonus recipe! The Classic Margarita (this is part of the 20% of the 80/20 rule)

In honour of Cinco De Mayo, I made us classic margaritas. And what a perfect day for them as it is currently 27C in YEG.

Now, things to keep in mind when making and drinking the classic margarita. They aren’t sweet. Not like the ones over slushie ice that you get at many restaurants. So keeping that in mind, you need to let the tequila shine. So use good quality tequila.


2 oz tequila

1 oz of triple sec

1 oz of freshly squeezed lime juice

garnish: salt for the rim of the glass, lime wedge


Pour all ingredients into a shaker glass, shake over ice; strain into a salt rimmed glass and serve over crushed ice; served in an old fashioned glass.
