#DOTW: Hennessy Margarita

I still bartend at least once a week, I will always love it. I also hear about the newest trends in cocktails, simply because people order them a lot. So, the “Henny Margarita”, as they lovingly call it, is very popular right now, so of course I had to learn it, in order to have some happy customers.Turns out it’s pretty simple, and (might I add) pretty delicious. It will be regular on my cocktail menu for parties and get-togethers.

What you’ll need:

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and all liquid ingredients (I like to add a wedge of lime in the shaker, it adds to a very fresh taste). Shake well. Add salt to the rim of a cocktail glass, then add ice. Strain the contents of the shaker into the glass, then garnish with a lime wheel.

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!
