Classic Margarita 1-2-3
From the recipe box of travel writer Carole Terwilliger Meyers.
This is the classic drink, with no frills and no salt (all the better for your blood pressure). I usually substitute Meyer lemons in for the lime juice because they grow profusely in my garden. Here’s how they make margaritas at the famous Kentucky Club & Grill bar in Juarez, Mexico, which is said to be the birthplace of the Margarita.
1 oz. Triple Sec
2 oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice
3 oz. tequila
Measure into a blender. Add lots of ice. Serve in a pretty glass.
