I was trying to find the “definitive” margarita recipe and there really isn’t a consensus out there as to what the criteria should be, so I just experimented with some great ingredients. Experiment successful!
2oz blanco or reposado tequila (100% agave)
1oz freshly squeezed lime juice
1oz St. Germain
1 dash (9 drops) orange bitters
Salt for rim of glass
Lime for garnish
Wet rim of cocktail glass with a lime wedge and salt rim. Fill cocktail shaker 3/4 with ice. Combine tequila, St. Germain, and lime juice and shake for 15 seconds. Strain into salted cocktail glass and garnish with lime wedge.
