What is Mexican cuisine without a great Margarita?! We are known for our house Margarita, the Hugorita. The key to a great Margarita is the ingredients – if you cut corners on the staples you cut the flavor. Sweet n Sour mix is a bad creation, a chemical mix that makes for a flat and flavorless Margarita. The key is to use fresh-squeezed lime juice. We suggest using standard American limes rather than the Key limes, which tend to be far too bitter. Now that you have the fresh limes for a natural sour for the Margarita, you need a bit of sweet to balance it out, and that is where the simple syrup comes in! It is simply a mix of sugar that is slowly cooked down in hot water to make rich syrup. By putting the sugar in this thick liquid form, you make it much easier to mix with the alcohol and the lime juice to make a very smooth drink. Triple Sec adds a nice citrus/orange touch, and Tequilas makes the mix a Margarita! This version calls for Sauza blanco. Pour all is a shaker with ice and shake vigorously and pour tableside when you are ready to enjoy!
- 1.5 oz Sauza Silver Tequila
- .75 oz Hiram Walker Triple Sec
- 1 oz simple syrup
- 1.5 oz fresh lime juice
Mix and shake well, garnish with a lime and enjoy!
