Margaritas in a Tasmanian Winter August 11 2020

We find that our lime tree provides us with so many limes over Winter that is has become a yearly tradition to enjoy a margarita or two in the depths of a Tasmanian chill. I like to crank the heat up and pretend it's summer - call me a denialist - but it gets me through the cold. 

 Equipment
 A shaker
 Cocktail glass

Ingredients
2 parts blanco Tequila (we used Espolon - mainly for the pretty label)
1 part Cointreau
1 part freshly squeezed lime juice
Salt

Cubed ice

Directions
1.Chill your glass
2.Run a lime wedge around the rim of your glass before rolling it in salt.
3. Put a handful of ice and all of the ingredients into a shaker, then shake hard for about 30 seconds to chill the liquid really well
4.Strain the mix into the glass being careful not to disturb the salt rim. 

 

Hot tip - You'll want to enjoy in moderation.
