May marks the beginning of our “Spirit of the Month” series.

What better spirit to feature in May than Tequila.

We think the Margarita is the perfect recipe to get things started!




The Margarita hit the cocktail scene

in the 1930’s and has since  grown into one of the most popular cocktails of all time.









2 oz   Silver 100% Agave Tequila

1 oz   Cointreau

3/4 oz   Fresh lime juice

1/2 oz   Simple syrup or Agave syrup

Coarse Salt

Lime wedge



Combine first three ingredients in mixing glass with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled salt-rimmed cocktail glass or an ice- filled rocks glass. Garnish with lime wedge.

Note: to salt the rim, rub a lime wedge on the outside rim of the glass, then dip into a saucer of coarse salt.
