Welcome to the everydaydrinkers.com podcast, video podcast. I’m your host, Derrick Schommer. And today, we’re going to make what I consider the best margarita that you can get.
Now I’m sure you could put all kinds of funk ingredients in it, you can make peach ones, you can make cherry ones, and we’re going to make a standard margarita. We’re going to use Cavalino Reposado, you can use silver, you can use Don Julio silver, and it’s good stuff, very expensive. This is harder to find. If you could find this, it’s usually in Texas. It’s not, it’s a great brand for the price is like 17.99, whatever, and it’s very good. And so we’re going to use reposado coz we’re looking to get a little more flavor into the drink. We don’t want to water down. Although silver works well, certain silvers like pochoan, you won’t taste a lot of tequila and if you don’t like a lot of tequila, might be the way to go.
So what we’re going to do, we’re going to use some lime, this is about 1 ounce, so that’s what we’re going to need so we can fill a shot glass or pour directly in our pre-iced shaker. We’re going to use a little Grand Marnier not too much, just enough to kind of accent it and give it a little orange taste. The secret ingredient here would be the partida agave nectar. A lot of people don’t know about agave nectar so they don’t know you use it. It’s going to give it a sweet flavor. It’s going to counteract the bitterness of the lime. And we have the full bottle of cavalino referrerone low but I’m thinking we can get away with just this. So let’s get started.
You’re always going to need to have lime squeeze, very important. We’ll just do the lime right up front; get it in here on the ice. Now if you can find limes that will fit the lime squeeze, you’re probably being better off, otherwise it can be a struggle, always worth it in the end. Squeeze them in. We’re going to do both sides. If you find this too hard, you can poke little holes into the inserts of the lime and it will make it easier to squeeze out. We’re going to do almost, let’s say ¾ of a shot of grand marnier. We’ll do the agave nectar next, again ¾ of a shot; you could kind of judge it. This is your sweetener so if you like a sweeter margarita, you can put a little more. If you don’t like it too sweet, you could put a little less. If your limes are a little fresh, a little bitter, you can kind of have a little more of this sweetener to it to try and counter balance that bitter bite you’re going to get. If you’re doing this for guests, more is probably better.
They’re not going to complain if it’s a little sweeter but they might complain if it’s very bitter especially if you’re not a big margarita drinker. And we’ll do 2 ounces of tequila. You can do 1 ounce, 1 ½ ounces. I like tequila, I do 2, you could do 3, you could do 4, you do as much as you want but 2 seems to be good at round numbering and people enjoy that way so I’ve never had anybody complain. Shake it up. We’ll pour it over a nice cold frosted glass with ice or like I do. This is how I make it for myself, it’s quick, it’s easy, and you’re done. It should give you a pale green color as you see in your screen. It will smell a little like tequila green marnier with a hint of lime. You won’t smell the agave nectar but you’ll taste the agave nectar. In this case, my lime is a little old, I’d probably could use a little more agave nectar over a well balanced, well-structured, very tasty and I think anybody you serve this recipe, they’re gonna be impressed.
