Best Tequila for Margaritas
These are Just 5 of The BEST
GRAN CENTENARIO PLATA
Any tequila that’s the official drink of the Mexican National Football team is likely worth drinking, no? That’s Gran Centenario for you, with a heritage of over 160 years of distilling and bottling their inimitable spirit. Their Plata tequila is rested in oak for the full 60 days allowable for a blanco, giving it a rich vanilla undertone uncommon in this style. That’s rounded out by strong aromatic notes of pear and lime, resulting in a superb mixing tequila.
HOW to MAKE a MARGARITA
This famously sweet, sour and salty drink will forever and always be my all-time favorite cocktail. But while I adore just about any kind of margarita.
Mastering the margarita requires a certain amount of practice, but once you dial-in your perfect ratio, it's a really easy cocktail to replicate. The classic recipe is 3 parts tequila, 2 parts Triple Sec (or Grand Manier), and 1 part freshly squeezed lime juice, and you should probably start off pretty close to that, but my personal favorite proportions are 4-3-2.
RECIPE "The PERFECT MARGARITA"
3 ounces TEQUILA ( Silver or Reposado)
2 ounce fresh squeezed Lime Juice
1/2 ounce Triple Sec (or Grand Manier)
1 teaspoon Sugar
Salt for the rim of the glass (if you want it)
Fill a cocktail shaker with Ice. Add the Tequila, Lime Juice, Triple Sec, and sugar. Cover and shake until mixed and well chilled (about 20 seconds).
Place about 2 ounce of Salt in a small plate. Cut a Lime into 2 slices, one for the garnish and one to rub on the rim of a rock glass.
Rub the whole rim of a rock glass with a lime slice. Place the rim of the glass into the Salt to coat the rim with Salt (You can also do a combination of Salt & Sugar).
Pour the contents of the cocktail shaker into the rock glass. Place a slice of Lime on top and serve.
