Serve inCoupe glass
Salt rim (optional) & lime wedge
How to make:
SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.
|1 1/2 fl oz||Patrón Silver blanco tequila|
|3/4 fl oz||Triple sec liqueur (40%)|
|3/4 fl oz||Lime juice (freshly squeezed)|
|1/6 fl oz||Agave syrup|
|4 drop||Difford's Margarita Bitters (optional)|
If desired, for the perfect salt rim you can liquidise or grind sea salt to make it finer, then run a cut slice of lime (or orange) around the outside edge of the glass rim before dipping the outside of the rim into salt. (Only salt the outside of the glass to avoid contaminating the drink.)
Margaritas made with premium tequilas are sometimes referred to as 'Deluxe' or 'Cadillac' Margaritas.
