As I write this post, I am taking a break from preparing for a wedding to be held at the B & B this evening. I have the flowers arranged and the wedding cake layers are in the oven. Hopefully that means that all is going well. If it weren’t the case that I still have a lot of work to do and that it isn’t even yet nine in the morning, I might be tempted to have a margarita because it is Cinco de Mayo … and really it feels much later in the day than it is. But I shall wait until the festivities tonight. It is always so exciting to host a wedding!
This is a slightly unusual margarita, being made with lemon juice instead of lime and having a touch of Midori for color and for a little extra sweet-tart flavor.
Lemon Midori Margarita
(1) Fill a cocktail shaker with crushed ice. Add 2 oz. of a reposado tequila, 1 oz. Cointreau, 1 oz. fresh squeezed lemon juice, 1 oz. Midori. Shake vigorously for one full minute.
(2) Run a slice of lemon around the edge of a margarita glass or cocktail glass. Dip glass in kosher salt or margarita salt. Fill glass with ice.
