Jose meet Stirrings

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.
