There’s always a great time to order a margarita. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, relaxing after a stunning summer day, or indulging in traditional Mexican cuisine - a margarita is a perfect drink. However, not all margaritas are created equal. At Tequila Sunrise Mexican Grill, we’re familiar with the fine balance of ingredients and methods that make the best margaritas.
Imagine sitting back in a comfortable chair and sipping on a freshly squeezed margarita, full of flavor. The tingle of lime, the sweetness of sugar, and the smooth flavor of tequila are just a few of the factors that contribute to the festive drink.
So, what makes the best margarita?
Getting The Basics Right
If a venue offers a cocktail menu, then you’ll most likely find margarita on the list of options. Normally, a margarita is a safe bet as the flavors of the drink and strength of the alcohol are well known. However, they can also be the most disappointing cocktail when they aren’t made well.
Using quality ingredients is one of the most important steps in making a great margarita.
Consider the following, which are considered to be the basic ingredients of a margarita:
● Quality tequila that is perfectly aged and distilled
● The perfect ratio of fresh lime juice to add a delicate zing
● Quality triple sec with a bitter edge
● The right amount of ice to add a refreshing touch without diluting the drink
Not only do the ingredients need to be top quality, but they need to be blended and mixed to precision.
Picking The Best Flavors
While many people consider the classic margarita to be an unbeatable drink, others prefer flavored cocktails. With this in mind, one person’s idea of the best margarita may differ from that of another.
Not only is it possible to add actual flavorings, such as watermelon, to the mix, but using different tequila can also inspire different flavors.
Another factor to consider is how the margarita is served. Drinking a delicious margarita from a glass offers a cozy experience, while a giant fishbowl or pitcher is the ultimate serving for a group of revelers or family celebrating a special occasion. For an extra-refreshing touch, frozen margaritas are a fantastic option.
