Classic Margarita on the Rocks Recipe

Happy Hour: Margarita

From cranberries to jalapenos to guavas, I've sipped a lot of experimental margaritas. While it's fun to build upon the classic combination of tequila, lime juice, and orange liquor, sometimes nothing beats the real thing. A traditional margarita on the rocks with a salted rim is one of life's little pleasures! Since it's Friday and Cinco de Mayo is next week, I highly recommend you kick start the weekend like I did, with an icy cold marg. Get the easy recipe after the break.
