Handmade fresh margarita

A handmade fresh margarita is so much better than most of the margaritas in this world that are made with premixed sweet and sour. In my opinion, sugar and additive-dense commercial sweet and sour mix is the reason for most margarita hangovers. Or at least hangovers that result from a margarita or two. If you have three or more, you are on your own.

A little bit of orange juice

I did a lot of reading, talking and tasting to figure out this margarita. I am not sure if that is a perk or a penalty of the food-blogging trade, but I happily rose to the occasion. The secret is a splash of fresh orange juice. This seemingly small addition really smoothes out a margarita.

Up or on the rocks

Serve this margarita up like a martini, or on the rocks.
