Well happy Cinco de Mayo time. It’s a time to celebrate democracy and freedom and all that. But it’s not Mexico’s Independence Day. That’s on September 16. Mostly in America we celebrate it as a day to commemorate Mexican heritage and tequila.

I like to celebrate this day by combining the following…

  • 2.5 oz 100% pure agave tequila (not that Sauza shit)
  • 1.5 oz Grand Marnier OR some-such orange liqueur (triple sec is ok, but not ideal.)
  • 2 T. fresh squeezed lime juice OR Nellie + Joe key lime juice
    Shake it super good in a shaker 2/3 filled with ice. Seriously. The more air in a cocktail the better.

    Pour it into an ice-filled salt-rimmed stubby rocks/whisky glass.

    (I like to salt one side of the glass so I have choices. Run the glass under the sink on one side and dunk it into some margarita salt.)

    Add a lime wedge for flair. Drink it. Appreciate Mexican culture and all the margaritas it’s introduced into your life.
