Classic Margarita Recipe Inspired by "Dance Moms: Miami"
Each spring as the snow melts (not really necessary this year) and the sun starts to warm again rather than just provide a soft light, the neighbors come out of their respective hibernating holes and meet in the driveways. By the time the weather reaches 60 degrees, we've shed our boots for sandals and are prancing around like we live in the tropics, tank tops with bare shoulders and wrap skirts aplenty.
The thing is, we don't live in the tropics, but we do appreciate the new season after a long Minnesota winter, and for our neighborhood that means breaking out the tequila and tipping back a few margaritas to the sunshine.
- Lime wedge
- Margarita salt
- 4 ounces sour mix
- 2 ounces tequila
- 1 ounce lime juice
- 1 ounce Triple Sec or Cointreau
Run lime wedge around the lip of your glass. Dip glass in margarita salt. Add lime wedge to the glass. Pour sour mix, tequila, lime juice and Triple Sec into a shaker with ice. Shake and pour into the salt-rimmed glass.
Enjoy responsibly while basking in the spring sunshine.
Speaking of tropical treats, enjoy your margarita while watching a new episode of "Dance Moms: Miami" which airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on Lifetime.
