It's Friday...and more often than not it means...

Margaritas in our humble casa...
Join us.

cha cha cha

... add a fresh mexican salsa/salad with avocado,

black olives,

cilantro, black beans, tomatoes, feta

and crema mexicana...

...Salt on the margarita needs to be kosher.

Cointreau is better than triple sec,

Limes fresh from the tree...if possible.

A "real" marg need only three ingredients.



  • Tequilla (2 parts)


  • Orange liquor (1 part)


  • and fresh lime (1 part)


~But~

My husband makes them even better.

Frankly he makes

the worlds best margarita and has perfected his recipe

through the years.


I am happily on the quality control tasting team...


Tough job...but someone's gotta do it.


Check out what everyone else is hooked on at
Julia's Hooked on Houses partay



Cheers!

I'm off for the weekend...so none this week. But next...perhaps.

Fun post :-) I'm not a margarita drinker, but I love lime!! It would be great to be able to pick fresh limes right off the tree :-)

Nice pictures :-)

I adore margaritas! We had friends over for dinner, and one of our friends made mojitos. I politely drank one, wishing with every sip that it was a margarita!

So - what is your husband's perfected recipe? You made it sound like it is different than the one you listed...

I have perfected my own recipe:

3 oz Jose Cuervo Margarita mix (I do like sweet margaritas)
2 oz triple sec (will have to try your suggestion for cointreau)
1 oz tequila
fresh lime juice

I switched the triple sec and tequila ratios because I like the taste better.

Love this and love the pics, fresh and inviting. I don't think I've ever had a Margarita; been there, done that but never a Margarita!! Ohh! However, sipping on a 'White Shiraz' at the moment (4pm is 'wine o'clock') - it's a lovely, cold sparkling pink.

Have a great weekend and cheers! xc

the pictures look so inviting^^
have a great weekend:)

Oh my very favourite tipple! How wonderful you have the best Margarhita Maker in town - hold on to him very tightly, he's gold. The best I've ever had was in a hole-in-the-wall Mexcian restaurant in D.C. Very humble, but lovely folks & jugs of Margarhitas to die for. I can still taste them & I'm 12,000 miles away!

Now a margarita, that is something I miss - we don't really drink those kind of cocktails in France, usually some derivation with champagne or wine. I think I must get shaking this summer, xv.

I love looking at the images on your Blog. As for Margaritas, love them on a Friday eve, watching the sunset. We're living in Baja for 6 mo. and have perfected a great Margarita recipe as well...the secret ingredient is beer, use instead of the orange liquor. Enjoy.

Blue Muse said...

Tough job, indeed. Are you hiring? Will work for margaritas!
MMMMmmm!

kathi said...

YUM! Can I have one for breakfast??

for the love of a house said...

Oh my! I love margaritas and must admit to not having one in over a YEAR! They don't make them here like they did in Texas! (The Mexican food restaurant we go to here when we are desperate! makes them using a powder mix!:o) I must try your recipe as Dan has been asking for some! I used to use the pre-mixed juice (gag, I know), but just can't do that anymore (corn syrup and all...) I agree kosher salt is a must, and I especially love it when I can plan ahead and do the salt in advance so it hardens on the rim. Your marg photos are so pretty I'm craving a marg....and it's only 8 AM!!! Bad you!
Have a wonderful weekend Linda!

Debbie said...

Oh my word Linda - You're speaking in "Debbie" Language! The margarita is my absolute favorite drink "hands down". I don't have it often but when I do, I savor every little bit of it.

Hope you have a delightful weekend!

Is it possible to follow a margarita with a grasshopper OR vice versa? It just might be ...

Liz@Violet Posy said...

Why S? said...

They're already delicious and you make them sound even better. And here I am, sober for Lent. and thirsty!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I just sent my cub scout and den leader husband off on a weekend camping trip. You reminded me that it is time to celebrate! :)

farmhouse wares said...

The first thing my husband said to me this morning was, "Is it time for a margarita?" It's my fave. I add a little honey to mine.

Marti said...

oh how fun camping.
I remember bits and pieces of when my dad had his camper in our back yard ...we would play in it but all we had were popsicles. noo margarita's that's for sure. funny thing is I can't remember all the flavors we had. !! think i'll go make myself one!

Mona said...

Your messing with my head. GAWD, this looks so good.

Susan S. said...

Yumm....Friday's is usually Margarita Happy Hour and Tex-Mex food. You are correct...Fresh Lime is the way to go!

Kim and David said...

It's so cold and gloomy here. Your photos make me think of summer. Looks so yummy - especially the margaritas. Kim

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

I'll bring my flip-flops!

Linda Lou said...

Living in San Diego, we have some damn good margaritas here - last Saturday some friends joined us at a place called Joses Courtoom-we had three pitchers - a little headache the next day!!

Colour Me Happy said...

I like the strawberry ones :) yum.

Amy said...

OMG, that looks sooooo delicious! My FIL makes the mojitos from scratch each year at the reunion and I imbibe just a bit. Yum.

BitLizard said...

My perfect margaritas are really very simple:

In a decanter mix 1 can frozen Bacardi Margarita mix (accept no substitutes here) then fill the can with Cuervo Gold and pour that in. Then add half a can of Triple Sec (lately been substituting Patrone Citronge). Fill with lots of ice and shake vigorously.

Prepare glasses with salt, pour drinks and squeeze the juice from a quarter of a lime on top of every drink. Throw the lime in as garnish.

Serves about 4. Warning: this is much stronger than what you'll get in a restaurant. Take care... :)

Lisa said...

You're killin' me! I drooled like mad over the brownies and now I'm so craving a margarita! :-) I've tried Sandra's recipe but HERS taste so much better when SHE makes them for me. lol I bet your hubby's taste better when he makes them too. lol I'll just have to imagine...

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

Hey, Linda, if you need any help on that quality-control tasting team, I'm your girl.

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

The perfect margarita is a work of art.
The calories are a killer though. Now I really feel sinful when I have one (or two)

Anonymous said...

Cheers,
Kathy :)

Onlinehandyman said...

Love Where You Live said...
