Classic Margarita

a classic margarita with homemade mix.  Recipe on

When I go out, I tend to order one of three cocktails: margarita, mojito, or martini.  Guess I like my alcoholic drinks that start with ‘m.’  I don’t drink too much during the school year when my schedule gets hectic, but during these glorious summer days I definitely enjoy some beverages on the patio. When it comes to tequila, I usually just drink a shot, but lately I’ve been into making my own margaritas.  The classic lime with a hint of orange will always be my favorite flavor, especially when made with homemade margarita mix.
