There are times – summer afternoons and evenings maybe – where wine may not be your drink of choice. Tequila and tequila-based drinks always conjure up lazy, carefree days. Don Julio Anejo is my husband’s tequila of choice. It is so good that it is wasted in a mixed drink and best on its own – either neat or on the rocks. Use a cheaper brand of tequila to make margaritas that say vacation like few other drinks can! There are now margaritas of every flavor imaginable. I like the basic:
1 ounce Triple Sec
1-½ ounces Tequila
1 ounce lime juice
Shake well and pour into salt-rimmed and ice-filled margarita class. Sit back, pull your sombrero down over your eyes, and relax.
