QUARANTINE COCKTAIL CLUB
FUSS FREE COCKTAILS
This is a cocktail that needs no introduction, but we'll give you one anyway. The Margarita, synonymous with Mexico, has countless origin stories but most likely originated from Baja California around the 1930's. Traditionally the cocktail is made with only four ingredients. These are tequila, orange liqueur, fresh lime juice and, of course, salt for the rim of the glass.
We use the classically preferred brand of Jose Cuervo gold tequila, and the premium orange liqueur in this recipe is Cointreau; a French triple-sec.
We've also included some lemon infused salt for the rim of your glass to add a citrussy twist to the salt-rim.
If you fancy a margarita, don't be seduced by cheap and nasty super market premixes - if you enjoy premium spirits, quality ingredients and cocktails made they way they should be this is the package for you.

FUSS FREE COCKTAILS
Jose Cuervo Tequila - 40% - 50ml
Cointreau - 40% - 50ml
Juice of fresh lime
Garnish - lemon infused salt rim & lime wheel
Recommended glassware: Margarita glass!
Chill your glass(es) by sticking it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes whilst preparing this cocktail. Firstly add 50ml of both the Tequila & Cointreau to a jug or a shaker filled with ice & squeeze in 50ml of fresh lime juice. Vigorously shake or stir until the ingredients are cold & combined.
(to make a frozen Margarita instead of shaking/mixing the ingredients you can blend them with a cup of ice)
Take your glassware from the freezer & run a wedge of lime across the rim of it making it wet & sticky, evenly pour the provided salt onto a plate & gently press the rim of the glass over the salt so that it adheres to the lime juiced rim. Cut a wheel of lime & add a small slit into it so that it can be placed onto the rim also.Finally pour the cocktail into the glass whilst making sure to keep the ice in the mixing vessel - serve & enjoy!
