I don’t use anything but the basics when I make a Margarita – tequila, triple sec, margarita mix and Roses Lime. I always use good tequila and do not mix in a blender. Put the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and pour. I serve margaritas up so the tequila doesn’t get watered down and is in its purest form. For this reason, I keep my tequila, triple sec, margarita mix and Roses Lime all in the refrigerator.
½ Cup 100% Agave Tequila - Reposado
½ Cup Jose Cuervo Tequila Mix
½ Cup Triple Sec
¼ Cup Roses Lime Juice
Serve in a cold glass (I keep mine in the freezer) with a salted rim.
Note: Try the recipe for Uncle Dan’s Green Beans (in a previous post December 7th) as they are great in a Bloody, especially those made with 100% Agave Tequila.
2 oz 100 % Agave Tequila
1 tsp Horseradish
3 dashes Tabasco Sauce
3 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
dash of Lime Juice
3 dashes Celery Salt
3 dashes Pepper
Tomato Juice or Clamato Juice
Dash of Salsa
1 tsp Dijon Mustard (optional)
Pina Tequila Twister:
2 tablespoons Cinnamon
2 tablespoons Granulated Sugar
Lime wedge for rimming the glass
3 parts Silver 100 % Agave Tequila
3 parts Pineapple Juice
1 part Licor 43
1 part Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
Dash Cinnamon Syrup
Combine cinnamon and sugar in a shallow dish. Rim a glass with lime wedge, then dip in cinnamon-sugar mixture. In a cocktail shaker, shake remaining ingredients and pour into the sugar-rimmed glasses over ice.
See my previous post on Navan, Navan is a vanilla-infused Cognac made by Grand Marnier.
4 parts 100% Agave Tequila Anejo
1 part Navan

Combine all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Pour straight up into chilled glasses.

1 oz 100% Agave Tequila

1/2 oz Fresh Pomegranate Juice
Pomegranate seeds for garnish
Pour the tequila, triple sec and pomegranate juice in a chilled Champagne flute. Fill with Champagne and garnish with pomegranate seeds.
