It’s muggy. Hot night. End of summer. Winter looming. So most nights since I’ve been back in New York, we mix up margaritas and sit out on the porch. Crickets chirping. Everything dark besides the flickering candles lining the table. So margarita recipes are catching my eye now. Here’s one from Cupcakes and Cashmere (a lovely blog which you should definitely pay a visit to when I finish here) that’s on the list: Orange and Lime.
2 1/2 oz. tequila
1 oz triple sec
1/4 oz. agave syrup
1/4 oz. Grand Marnier
In a cocktail shaker with ice, juice 2 limes and 1/2 orange. Add tequila, triple sec, and simple syrup. Shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Strain over glass with new ice cubes and float Grand Marnier on top.
