A Salty Margarita is your essential Summer Drink!
- 60 ml tequila (silver or blanco)
- 130 ml triple sec
- 25ml freshly squeezed lime juice
- 15 ml simple syrup (adjust to taste) - To make simple syrup, mix equal parts of sugar and water and heat until the sugar dissolves. Let it cool before using.
- Ice cubes
- Lime wedge and Achill Island Sea Salt flakes (for rimming the glass)
Rim the glass: Take a lime wedge and run it around the rim of a cocktail glass then dip the rim into a small plate with Achill Island Sea Salt.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Add the tequila, triple sec, lime juice, a pinch of Achill Island Sea Salt, and simple syrup to the shaker.
Put the lid on the cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds, chilling the mixture and mixing the flavors.
Carefully strain the cocktail into the prepared glass filled with fresh ice cubes. You can use a strainer or the shaker's built-in strainer.
Add a slice of lime to the rim of the glass to garnish.
Sip and savor your classic Margarita! It's best enjoyed fresh, so serve it right away.
