Cocktail of the Week- The Margarita

4 May

Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo!  A day celebrating the Mexican Army’s improbable victory over the French back in 1862.  What better to indulge in, but one of Mexico’s classic cocktails, The Margarita?!  Not only is the Margarita one of Mexico’s revered cocktails, but it’s also a staple in Texas!  The beauty of the Margarita is that there are tons of types andcombinations that a Margarita can be enjoyed in, in addition the basics, tequila, Triple Sec, and lime juice.  You have Traditional, Frozen, On the Rocks, Presidente, Strawberry, Raspberry, Prickly Pear, Kiwi, Pomegranate, Mango, Dos Equis, Blue Curacao, Peach, Italian, Salt, No Salt, just to name a few.  Naming the different types almost makes me feel like Bubba explaining the different kinds of shrimp.  At any rate… be sure to toast with a Margarita of your choice for Cinco de Mayo!
