Was totally in the mood for a margarita and didn’t have any of the great pre-mixed/alcohol-holding stuff at home. And, didn’t feel like driving to the liquor store to get some. But of course I have the essential components to make one of the essential drinks in life (tied with wine, 2nd in line to water) — tequila and triple sec — but not the rest.
So when I went to the closest grocery store to get some food (with initials WF, meaning they can’t have super unnatural, chemical-saturated, 10-syllable ingredient products), I bumped into some margarita mix. Darn! Inspected, thought for about 5 seconds, purchased.
It was Stirrings. They tell you to add 1.5 oz of tequila to 3 oz of mix. I did 1 oz Jose Cuervo and 0.5 oz of triple sec (rough estimates). Perfect on the rocks, no salt. I was pretty impressed. Good to know for future binding situations.
