Tips for the Perfect Margarita
*article from cazadores.com*
The margarita is a versatile classic cocktail that has become one of the most popular cocktails in the world. It is easy to make and just as easy to mess up. Learn the basics here so you can build your own with confidence.
Use Fresh Juice
Fresh juice is important in a margarita. It will enhance the look of the cocktail while providing more flavor without added sugars and preservatives. We hand squeeze fruits at room temperature because it will yield more juice than cold fruits.
Use Blanco or Repo
Tequila selection in a margarita depends on personal preference. Feel comfortable using Blanco or Reposado. Use Blanco for powerful citrus and agave flavors or Reposado for mellow woody and spicy flavors.
Shake with Ice
Fill a shaker with lots of ice and shake your margarita until your arms feel sore! Doing this will cool your drink but it also dilutes the liquid which will help round out flavors and bring all ingredients together.
Salt the Rim
Adding salt to the rim of your glass will intensify flavors within the margarita. Always use coarse salt and try experimenting with different flavors. Manny uses a salt flavored with guajillo and pasilla chili peppers, hibiscus, sugar, and lime.
