The Best Margarita Recipe


In honor of Cinco de Mayo, here's the best margarita recipe (it's Ina Garten's recipe with a twist from my dad - he serves his on the rocks with a splash of Damiana):

1 lime, halved
Kosher salt
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (5 limes)
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)
1 cup Triple Sec
1 cup white tequila
2 cups ice
Splash of Damiana 

Rub the outside rims of 6 glasses with a cut lime and dip each glass lightly into a plate of kosher salt.

Combine the lime juice, lemon juice, Triple Sec, tequila, and ice in a blender and puree. Place extra ice in a cocktail shaker. Fill with margarita mix, shake well, and strain into glasses. Top with a splash of Damiana.
