Test Kitchen Notes
WHO: thirschfeld is FOOD52er whose photos, recipes, and writing impressed us so much, we gave him his own column.
WHAT: The perfect margarita, in our books.
HOW: Just juice, mix, and gulp. But watch yourself.
WHY WE LOVE IT: thirschfeld uses a bit less tequila and more Cointreau that the standard margarita formula, which made us think the drink might be sweet, but it's not -- it's smooth, tart, and drinkable as all get out. —Food52
as many as you need
equal part fresh lemon and lime juice
part favorite tequila, the more expensive the less the hangover
In This Recipe
So if you have 1 oz. lemon, 1oz. lime, you have 2 oz. Cointreau and 2 oz tequila. Mix all of the above, stir and serve over crushed ice.
Crushed ice is important, trust me.
Make sure you don't have to go to work tomorrow and enjoy.
