Happy National Tequila Day! Please put down the sweet and sour mix and squeeze a few lemons and limes with this gadget (no, you can’t buy that bottled juice instead). Have you seen the ingredients listed on a bottle of margarita mix? I’ll tell you: water, high fructose corn syrup, citric acid, agave nectar, sodium citrate, sodium hexametaphosphate, cellulose gum, potassium sorbate, acacia gum, natural flavors, polysorbate 60, ester gum, sodium metabisulfite, yellow 5, blue 1. Sounds delicious, huh? My favorite part is where they don’t list either lemon or lime.
Please do tequila a favor and pair it with some nice fresh-squeezed juice. Now, this is a pretty strong drink, so you may only need one; that’s the way I like it. Don’t forget to use a decent 100% agave tequila. Pin this recipe inside your kitchen cabinet so you can whip this up quickly, and never drink a bad margarita again (at least not at home)!
