Best Flavored Margarita Recipe
DaRecipe – Best Flavored Margarita Recipe – An excellent Margarita! Most Margarita’s “bite back”, but this one is smooth and mellow with just the right ingredient proportions for nice a salty/sour kick. I usually put Grand Marnier in my Margaritas, but this was a novel way to give just a “hint” of the Grand Marnier. Some people let the salt rim intimidate them. Don’t be like them! It’s easier than you think. I have a guide here that shows you how to rim a glass. You can use saucer, but I find it much easier to use this margarita rimmer I bought a couple of years ago. You just stamp the glass into the sponge soaked in lime juice or water, and then twist it in the compartment that holds the salt.

I like my margaritas a lot sweeter, so I added simple syrup. The simple syrup is a good solution because you can add it to suit your tastes. I started with 1/2 cup and ended up adding a full 1 cup simple syrup, which was just the right amount of sweet and tart. It just wasn’t good and I spent another ten minutes trying to fix this bland and bitter mess. I finally ended up converting it into a Watermelon Margarita; adding about 1 1/2 cups of watermelon, 1 tbsp sugar, extra tequila and triple sec.
