Part of my summer manifesto includes making three new drinks.
This one isn't new but it's my current favorite - made even more my favorite because it comes from my parents (and I love that when I read it I can hear my Dad's voice). I shared it last month on Facebook but wanted to include it here so I can easily access it again in the future.
Do you have a favorite summer drink I could add to my list to try? I just saw a watermelon mojito recipe in Everyday Food last night that would accomplish two things from my summer manifesto (three new drinks + lots of watermelon).
Hope you have a great weekend!
ALMAC SUPREMO MARGARITA
Basic Quantities to make one serving (one serving = one pitcher // two glasses):
- 3 oz. good tequila
- 2 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice - when you pick out the limes, go for the soft ones
- 1 oz. simple syrup - to make simple syrup - mix 1 cup water and one cup of sugar in small sauce pan and bring to a boil until liquid is clear - then chill. Usually I do a couple of cups each and save left over in refrigerator for next event. After liquid turns clear then cool it - best to make ahead of time.
- 1/4-1/2 oz. orange liquor (we used Cointreau)
Triple above ingredients and mix all in pitcher or blender 3/4 full of ice - shake and pour over ice for "on the rocks" or blend and put in a martini glass for "blended." Your Mama and I prefer "on the rocks."
Rim your glass with mixture of one tablespoon of kosher salt and one teaspoon of sugar by placing the mixture on a plate. Rim the glass with a wedge of lime and dip glass in mixture of salt/sugar (it helps to do this prior to pouring your potion in the glass).
