Drink Recipe: Imperial's House Margarita


Published:

You know the saying: April showers bring May margaritas. OK, we made that up, but come May we’re ready for some good, old-fashioned tequila-based beverages in anticipation of al fresco imbibing. Having a Cinco de Mayo fiesta? Try this recipe from Ferndale hot spot Imperial, popular for their tacos and margaritas. It’s a classic with fresh lime juice and simple syrup — no sour mix here. Salud! — Dorothy Hernandez

 

Ingredients

2 ounces tequila (they use Sauza)
1 ounce Triple Sec
1 ounce simple syrup
1 ounce fresh lime juice
Sliced limes and kosher salt

 

Directions

Mix first four ingredients over ice in a shaker. Rub lime on the rim and coat with salt. Pour the drink into the glass and garnish with a lime slice.
