Happy Cinco de Mayo!

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I thought I would share with you all my favorite way to make a Margarita.

The Skinny Girls Margarita
On the Rocks
(via, The Real Housewives of New York’s Bethany Frankel)

What you’ll need:
* 2 oz of clear Tequila (100% agave, Patron Silver)
* (count 1, 2 while you pour, no need for measuring)
* A splash of fresh lime juice (one small lime usually is just the right amount of juice)
* A splash of Cointreau, Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
(instead of the Cointreau, Grand Marnier or Triple Sec, for just the right amount of sweetness, I always add to this recipe a squeeze of agave nectar)

Combine all ingredients into a shaker and pour over a glass of ice and garnish with a lime wedge.
Makes one serving

And if you just want to get out for a margarita today and are looking for the best spot in CT to do so, head over to Su Casa, by far the best ritas in the state!
