Best Ever Margarita

Hat tip - Bill

Nothing goes together like the hot summer days here in Florida and a damn good margarita. In a continuing effort to perfect the consumption of tequila, here is my current favorite recipe.

Zest 6 medium limes and 6 small lemons.

Halve the limes and lemons and juice into the zest.

Add 1/2 cup of sugar and a pinch of salt; steep overnight in refrigerator.

The next day strain juice to remove pulp and set aside.

Mixology: Mix equal parts juice, TripleSec, and reposado Tequila (I used Cuervo Tradicional) with crushed ice.

Serve and enjoy. Makes 8 servings.

The juice will freeze very well if events overtake the effort after the first round or two.
