Joel’s Classic Margaritas

Here’s a classic that Joel has been making for years! It packs a punch, yet goes down smooth and the real lime juice is a must! Try these drinks with vegan refried black beans and pico de gallo

Joel’s Classic Margaritas

The best margaritas have real lime juice, not (heartburn inducing) sweet and sour mix. I prefer my margarita on the rocks, but these could also be made blended.

The tequila used here is reposado tequila, which is aged slightly. A good aged tequila will cost you around thirty-five to seventy dollars, but is worth it when served in a drink like this where the flavor really shines. Allow this drink to mellow for about five to ten minutes after mixing, the ice will melt slightly and round out the bite of the alchohol.

I like to enjoy this drink in the backyard on a warm day with chips and salsa.
