    Salt is for chips. Even though a salt rim is part of the “classic” recipe it has no benifit to the flavour of the Tequila. Sugar is a common and (from a taste point of view) more appropriate alternative. Or you could could do half salt and half sugar, so everyone is happy!

  2. Maybe it’s just me, but there is something about a guy, or girl, bartender with an English accent that just really makes the experience THAT much BETTER!

    Profound & proper!

  3. that’s golden margarita… margarita is with Silver tequila, a young tequila

    Nice to see some people who know what they are talking about ! Fine Marga by me except the Jose Gold…I’d use an Anejo Tequila, Arette, 1800, Herradura, …

    @shakertv To the best of my knowledge, salt, was a way for the mexicans to keep a good balance between water and salt in their body, while drinking. Not unlike the way the russians would accompany their vodka by pickled cucumbers. By the way, you can hardly say that a classic margarita contains sugar syrup. For the record, I feel that an unaged tequila works better in the drink, the rawness of it makes for an excellent drink.

  16. niggagonefishin says:

    Also, triple sec, not cointreau (although I think it goes just fine) is standard for a margarita. And while I’m at it, I’d like to mention that bacardi is a below average rum, in regards to your Mojito recipe.

    you kick ass!

    @niggagonefishin i would comment more on him using jose tequila its awful! its only 50% agave the rest is basically rum

  19. Machinefoot says:

    @hellohello66666 i’d agree that jose is terrible tequila but you wouldn’t waste a good tequila like don julio on a margarita.

  20. RPGgrenade says:

    I thought the margarita had the whole rim salted… hmm…

  21. NOOOO not jose cuervo! Anything that isn’t 100% blue agave isn’t real tequila.

  22. cane sugar?

  23. tommy’s rules

  24. Pastagavioli says:

    Awesome…You put sugar twice!!!! orange liqueur, and sugar syrup…Man, wtf!!! can’t spoil classics like that

  25. Should be using unaged tequila imo. Bacardi Traditional is cheap and very good (esp considering its bacardi brand)
