If it's not made right, the classic margarita will leave me with sugar-coated teeth and strong booze breath. But this isn't the case with the Tommy's Mexican Restaurant's version; rather than using a syrupy orange liqueur, it calls for all-natural (and health-conscious) agave nectar.
The key to making this perfectly is to use the best ingredients possible, from the freshest limes to top-notch reposado, or "rested," tequila. You'll find yourself going back for seconds for a tipple that's refreshing, light-bodied, and balanced. Try something new!
1 lime wedge
2 ounces reposado tequila
1 ounce fresh lime juice
1/2 ounce agave nectar or juice
- Moisten the outer rim of a rocks glass with the lime wedge and coat lightly with salt.
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the tequila, lime juice, and agave nectar, then shake well and strain into rocks glass.
