Last year I got introduced to the pleasures of a good Margarita during my business trip to United States when I sampled them at a number of Mexican restaurants.

As a souvenir of sorts, I picked up a massive bottle of Jose Cuervo pre-mixed Margarita from BevMo that I guzzled up within a couple of weeks.

After that, I decided to learn to mix Margaritas on my own, and I found a great recipe on the 5th of May (Cinco de Mayo), when my inbox got flooded with cool Mexican recipes including this awesome one for Margaritas.

I am trying this out this weekend, hopefully my efforts come out looking this pretty 🙂 .

  4. For Salting the Rim:
  5. Pour Kosher salt into a dish.
  6. Slice a wheel off of an orange.
  7. Rub the rind along the edge of the glass (this helps the salt stick to the glass).
