#DOTW: Mid-Winter Margarita

Margaritas are my thing, that’s for sure. It’s hands down my favorite cocktail. But let’s face it, unless you’re at a Mexican spot, they’re not that popular in the colder months. It makes sense, the flavors are refreshing and thirst quenching, so it’s traditionally a summer drink. But hey, leave it to me to find a Margarita that’s apparently geared towards the winter months! And it’s a good one….

What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Don Julio Blanco Tequila (or Blanco tequila of your choice)
  • 1 oz Triple Sec
  • 2 oz fresh grapefruit juice
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • salt and chili powder

Combine equal part of salt and chili powder. Rim a highball glass with lime juice and dip it in the chili-salt to decorate the rim. Combine tequila, triple sec, grapefruit and lime juices in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake well. Add ice to the glass, then pour the tequila mix on top. Garnish with sliced lime.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
