3-2-1 Caddy Margarita

3-2-1 caddy margarita

With the changing of the seasons making it rain ALL the time up here in the Seattle area, we’ve been taking every nice day we can as an excuse to invite friends over, play outside and drink margaritas. This recipe isn’t fancy. Its what I use to make a boat load of margaritas and have them all taste uniformly delicious. The 3-2-1 ratio is (in my opinion) key to the perfectly balanced margarita.


Equipment: small plate, old fashioned glasses, shaker, strainer

Kosher salt for rimming

Lime wedges for rimming and garnish

1½ oz blanco tequila (Milagro is the house go to around here)

1 oz Grand Marnier

½ oz fresh lime juice


Dump salt onto small plate. Wipe rim of glass with lime wedge and dip rim into salt. In shaker tin, combine tequila, Grand Marnier and lime juice with ice. Shake for 20 seconds and strain into rimmed glass over fresh ice. Cheers!
