tequila? [moved from Home Cooking]
I had these in Tlaquepaque (Guadalajara):
in a small bowl (think cereal bowl size):
chunks of citrus fruit in skin (especially small grapefruit)
chunks of ice
Squirt, Fresca or Toronja (sodas with grapefruit flavor)
pinch of salt (optional)
1-3 shots of silver tequila (depending on how fast you want to get happy)
serve all in the bowl and guests squeeze the fruits into the drink with their fingers and sip from the bowl.
triple sec and lime juice... i'm surprised no one has mentioned it.
Our recipe at work for a margarita is 2 oz tequila, 1 1/2 oz Dekuyper 48 proof triple sec, and 1 oz Rose's lime or fresh lime juice, depending on how sour you like it. For my own, I'll pass on the salt and serve it in a rocks glass instead of a cocktail glass.
Pass on the patron or don julio, that would be like putting grey goose in a screwdriver.
Yes, the Todos Santos in Baja. They make Damiana there and sell at roadside stands, and also there's another mass-produced version in a brown glass bottle shaped like a fertility goddess.
You can get/order it at BevMo.
"Tequila collins" - sparkling limeade or lemonade (from TJ's, or a mix of seltzer, simple syrup, and fresh juice) with tequila. Either way add some lime juice too.
The Todos Santos: tequila, damiana, and fresh tangerine juice. Our wedding reception drink. Delicious!
