If you are throwing a Cinco de Mayo party at your apartment in Garner, NC you need the right decorations, some perfect Mexican food and the right Margarita.
Well, at Abberly Place Apartments, we would like to share with you our favorite margarita recipe that will sure be the talk of the fiesta.
The Perfect Margarita
1 fluid ounce premium tequila
3/4 fluid ounce brandy-based orange liqueur (such as Grand Marnier®)
3/4 fluid ounce cointreau
3/4 fluid ounce simple syrup
dash of raspberry flavored liqueur
1 lime, juiced
1/2 cup sweet and sour mix
Salt the rims of 2 large margarita glasses. To do so, pour salt onto a small plate, moisten the rims of the glasses on a damp towel and press them into the salt.
In a cocktail shaker 3/4 full of ice, combine tequila, Grand Marnier, cointreau, simple syrup, raspberry liqueur and lime juice. Pour in sweet and sour until ice is covered. Shake vigorously and strain into glass.
Enjoy, (and if you are going out to enjoy these margaritas, choose a designated driver)!
