You know things are bad when you are thinking of Margaritas at midday, right?
Things in the UK are HORRIBLE* at the moment and i need cheering up! i've been wanting to share my favourite Margarita recipe with you for ages (it's SO simple) and so i thought that now, in the midst of this shit-storm**, would be the perfect time.
Sotol is hands-down my favourite tipple of all time. It's an absolute treat to have it because it's a) quite pricey and b) it takes about 15 years for the plant to mature and when it does, it only yields about (when processed) 750ml of Sotol - eek. Tequila is obviously much easier to get your hands on over here, in Doomsville, but make sure you go 100% agave, none of that crap that comes with the bottle wearing a plastic hat, or a gimmick worm at the bottom, FFS!
Simple Sotol / Tequila Margarita (aka my favourite drink / lets cheer this crappy time up)
- 1 part sotol / tequila
- 1 part lime juice
- 1 tsp agave syrup
- 3 cubes of ice
- Add all the above to a cocktail shaker, and shake. Serve over ice in a salt-rimmed glass.
- Drink & keep them coming because..
*UK - what did you do? What the fuck did you do? Let it be known, that I am one of the 48%. I wanted to remain the European Citizen I was born as. I believed I lived in a country where the majority of us believed in a future based on love, kindness and hope. I was wrong, I was in the minority and now I have to sit back and watch all the vile hatred unfold. I am totally depressed about what we seem to have become.
**sorry for all the swears, i'm just really, really pi$$ed off.
