The Margarita: the Original and the Contender.
I like my Margaritas, but I like them a particular way. The guy at Stravaigin, to my mind, makes a mean one but many fall short of the mark. So, tonight being Mexican night HI took it upon himself to re-create my perfect Margarita.
On the left is the Original, which has 1.5 units of tequila: 1 unit of triple sec (ideally Cointreau): 0.5 unit fresh lime juice
This to my mind is far too boozy and not sharp enough
So, on the right we have the Contender which is 1:1:1
HI mocks this, saying it is essentially just a lime juice drink with a dash of tequila. I would say if it is good enough for Gary Regan, it's good enough for me.
