This margarita is my go-to for a refreshing cocktail. It’s the perfect hump day treat!
1 1/2 ounces silver tequila (I used Espolon)
3/4 ounce triple sec (I used Cointreau)
3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
4 ounces Spindrift Limeade
1 lime wedge, for garnish
Salt for the rim, optional
If you would like salt, rub the lime wedge around the outside of your drinking glass lightly. Dip the glass into the salt to coat the rim. Set aside.
In a cocktail shaker*, combine ice, tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. Shake the drink vigorously until the outside of the shaker is cold, approximately 15 seconds.
Once shaken, strain the drink into your drinking glass. Then, top the drink off with Spindrift Limeade and garnish with the lime wedge. Enjoy!
*You can also do this in a Mason Jar, or you can simply stir the drink instead.
*If you like a foamier cocktail, you can add an ounce of egg white to the shaker.
