Cinco De Mayo

I will be doing some editing today for a story written by a good friend and a great writer, Walter Rhein. The soundtrack will be the new album "Dry" by my good friend Johnny Blackthorn (just released - pick it up!). And the drink? The perfect Margarita, of course. Today I will eschew the cheapo margaritas I normally make and go for a more traditional recipe. Here's one I snagged off of Yahoo (the source of all information)

The Recipe: The Perfect Agave Margarita
·         Kosher salt
·         2 lime slices or wedges
·         1/4 cup tequila blanco
·         2 tablespoons agave syrup (nectar)
·         2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
·         Pour some kosher salt into a small dish. Rub 1 lime slice over half the rim of an Old Fashioned glass (if you prefer your Margarita on the rocks) or a coupe glass (if you prefer it up). Dip rim of glass into salt.
·         Combine tequila, agave syrup, and juice in a cocktail shaker; fill with ice and shake well. Strain into prepared glass. Garnish with second lime slice.
