Happy National Margarita Day!
We know you don't need an excuse to celebrate, but we'll give you one anyway. When it comes to margaritas, we love when bartenders get creative with their flavors and concoctions. But sometimes, you just want a perfectly blended classic margarita: lime, good tequila, and a little bit of salt.
This Hacienda Margarita — created by Andrés Moran in Guadalajara, Mexico — is a traditional margarita with a little bit of citrus panache. It's refreshing, sweet and smooth enough to drink all night long.
1.5 ounces Patrón Silver
.5 ounces Patrón Citrónge Orange
.5 ounces fresh lime juice
.25 ounces agave nectar
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake with ice to chill. Strain over fresh ice in an old-fashioned glass, and garnish with a lime wedge. Salud!
