The Markarita

When grilling out on the deck, it's a necessity to have a crisp summer cocktail in hand. We have been doing a lot of grilling this week and I think we have found our signature summer drink. Margaritas have always been a favorite for us and now that I have perfected this recipe that my dear Dad sent me a few weeks ago, we're in Happy Hour Business! If you have hopped on the Skinny Girl Margarita fan club like I have, you will LOVE this mix it up at home recipe. This margarita has minimal ingredients, little sugar and the perfect kick! Don't forget the salt rim and for an extra pop on your tongue, lemon lime seltzer water is a nice zippy addition.


The Markarita

Equal Parts-Tequila and Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
Agave Nectar, to sweeten as desired
Lemon-lime seltzer water (optional)
Garnish with salt rim and fresh lime wedge

For those of you who were there to celebrate our wedding, the Markarita should sound familiar, as it was one of our signature drinks! (now I just have to come up with the perfectly blended Ninatini!)
