It’s Thursday at 10:30am.  I look at my food holiday calendar and see that February 22nd is Margarita day and realize that I don’t have a recipe for one of my favorite summer cocktails on my site and think “It’s time to remedy that situation!”.

I was never a huge fan of tequila or any kind of spirit alcohol for that matter. I’ve only every preferred beer and now red wine; though for the early part of my adult life, I drank beer because being in college and living on your own at 22, beer was cheap and basically all I could afford.

Then about 24 years ago, I decided to finally give up smoking (yes, I am a former smoker) and got hypnotized. Amazingly it worked, but the funny thing was that I must have associated smoking with drinking beer, because around the same time, I couldn’t stand the taste of beer anymore either (and still don’t to this day!).

That’s when I switched to red wine and an occasional what I like to call “fruity” drinks like frozen Daiquiris, Bay Breeze or Mai Tai’s. It wasn’t until the last couple of years that I tried a Margarita and actually liked it this time. I’m not sure why I didn’t like them before, but a nice, cold Margarita on a hot Summer day with some homemade tortilla chips and salsa tastes amazing!

Anyway, so I decided on a Thursday morning that I would make a Patron Margarita to share with you. I also wanted to have it logged here on the blog because this is usually where my family and friends come to look first for a recipe before reaching out to me and it’s also an easy place for me to find my own recipes when I’m not home too.

Patron Margarita

This recipe makes two drinks and you’ll need four ingredients: Tequila, Contreau; which is an orange flavored triple sec liquor, fresh squeezed lime juice and simple syrup; which can be made by bringing equal parts of granulated sugar and water to a boil; then allow it to cool.

I opted to use Patron Silver Tequila to make these Margaritas because it’s “Go Big or Go Home”; besides I get less of a headache if the alcohol is top shelf. I also like fresh limes so you get some of that pulp in there too. Makes it extra “limey”. 😊

You can make and serve this Margarita two ways:

  1. Pour all ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake well. Line the rim of two glasses with fresh lime juice; then dip in sea salt. Add the Margarita to the glass without ice cubes or with; which would be called “on the rocks”
  2. Pour all ingredients into a blender with ice and blend to make a frozen Margarita.

This Patron Margarita was light, refreshing and I can’t wait to drink these by the pool this summer.  But if you don’t want to wait until then, try them for National Margarita Day or Mardi Gras. ~Enjoy!
