St. Germain Margaritas

Ahhhh, margarita season.  Oh how I love thee.  One of my favorite outdoor activities is to sit on a patio somewhere with friends, during the weekend and enjoy margaritas and a little Mexican food.  I have to admit, tequila isn’t my favorite adult beverage (not sure why…maybe some bad experiences) but I do enjoy margaritas.  That’s probably the only way I can enjoy tequila.  I have a friend who lives in New York and she swears by St. Germain margaritas from one of her favorite bars.  I told her that once Lent was over, I would attempt to make some and like any good friend, I kept my promise.

Only able to purchase a large bottle of St. Germain, I’m now the proud owner of what feels like a gigantic bottle of St. Germain…I’m not complaining though.  Occasionally, I like to add just a splash of St. Germain to a glass of champagne so as long as I keep a bottle of bubbly in the fridge, I’ll be able to enjoy fancy lil’ cocktail.  I found this margarita to be a bit more ‘elevated’ in flavor and sophistication than most margaritas you have at your local hole in the wall.  It’s light, crisp, has a hint of sweetness but not too sweet and is pretty perfect for a warm day.  The ratios, I kept the same as the recipe found here on Freut Cake and it was perfect. 

The only ingredients you need are:
– St. Germain (1 1/2oz)
– Tequila (1 1/2oz)
– Lime juice (fresh – 1/2 oz)
– Sea salt for rim (optional)

Rub fresh lime around the rim of a glass and dip into salt until the entire rim is covered in salt.
Add tequila, St. Germain and lime juice in a shaker (with ice) and shake.
Add to a cold glass and enjoy.

Happy Friday!
