Classic Lime Margarita

How do you like your Margarita?  On the rocks, with or without salt, frozen or with crushed ice?  Personally, I love a good simple three ingredient “Classic Lime Margarita” and I prefer mine shaken with ice, served on the rocks with salt!


The citrus is here and it is a wonderful thing to make delicious drinks with.  Tequila is great with any of it, lemons, limes, grapefruit… I love using a reposado tequila in my margaritas, it adds another level of flavor to the drink.


While I was shooting the photos for this cocktail today, there was a light breeze outside on my patio, it’s 76 degrees and this cute little bee lands on my lime.

I have to share his cuteness.
