The Classic Margarita


By Michael Messina

Cinco de Mayo is next week and it wouldn’t be complete without a classic, refreshing margarita. This salty, tangy tequila cocktail pleases any and every crowd. Ours is made with union ingredients, which means it will go down that much smoother.

Keep this recipe in your back pocket all through summer.

As always, drink responsibly. Drink union.

Shake it, make it:

For one drink:

1 1/2 oz. tequila (Captain Gold, Conquistador, El Jimador, El Toro, Herradura, Montezuma)
1 1/2 oz. Montezuma triple sec
1 to 1 1/4 oz. of lime juice
Salt (Morton, Diamond Crystal, Durkee) for the rim of the glass

Shake all the ingredients with cracked ice in a cocktail shaker until the exterior frosts. Strain into a glass over rocks, or “up” into a cocktail glass.
