Who sets these dates anyway?

I like Margaritas, especially those concocted with freshly made agave (tequila) at Pablo's in Fernandina Beach, Florida.

Salute!


(I also like tequila, also known as Mexican Mule, for a reason.)

Now you don't have to wait for Cinco de Mayo to taste the variety of recipes of this Mexican drink which can be done in different styles and flavors, including cranberry, peach and lime.



Let's make a Classic Margarita: 
(From Epicurious)


INGREDIENTS

2 ounces tequila made from 100 percent agave, ( preferably reposado or blanco)

1 ounce Cointreau (AT LEAST)

1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice

Salt for garnish

PREPARATION

Combine tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice in cocktail shaker filled with ice. Moisten rim of Margarita or other cocktail glass with lime juice or water. Holding glass upside down, dip rim into salt. Shake and strain drink into glass and serve



facts garnered from other websites:

Tequila is distilled from the blue agave plant. Blue agave is larger in size and sweeter than regular agave.

According to NationalDayCalendar.com, Tequila is made primarily in the area surrounding the city of Tequila in Mexico.

"Mexican law states that Tequila can be produced only in the state of Jaliscoand." reports the website.

Just like the French. Champagne is only Champagne when it comes from the Champagne region in France. I like Champagne. When is Champagne Day?

Another fun fact: Don Cenobio Sauza, the founder of Sauza Tequila and Municipal President of the Village of Tequila from 1884 to 1885, was the first to export Tequila to the United States.

And the rest, as they say, is hysterical. Enough to make you take your clothes off.

Thanks to Total Wine for this kickin' recipe:





Celebrate!
