I am often asked where my favorite place in town to get a margarita, and I have to say that I really like the margarita’s at El Jarro de Arturo. I like the Arturo margarita because it is not syrupy or all that sugary sweet. I one time talked to a waiter about how they make it, and took his advice, added a little more tequila and a twist of orange and have my margarita recipe which is seen below:
*2 shotglasses of Patron Silver
*1 shotglass of Cointreau
*1 shotglass of freshly squeezed lime (using a lime squeezer this is about 2 limes)
*twist of a fresh orange
Combine all ingredients with ice in a shaker; shake and serve in a martini glass.
I like it because you can still taste the tequila (hence the importance of using good tequila) and it just tastes fresh.
That’s it. Simple. Easy. Fresh. Potent.
Be sure to vote for El Clásico inn the Patrón Cocktail Lab on Facebook so that it becomes the most popular margarita!
