Here is our favorite recipe for a homemade margarita. Of the mixes we've tried, we like the ZingZang brand the best. and we like using their small cans, which are perfect for two drinks. The Mezcal imparts a smoky taste and Don Julio is great but pricy, and there are a number of other Blanco tequilas that are nearly as good. You can adjust the ratio of Mezcal to Tequilla to your liking.
The ingredients consist of:
- An 8 oz. can of ZingZang Margarita Mix
- 1.5 oz. of Wahaka Mezcal
- 3.5 oz. of Don Julio Tequila
Add ice to a cocktail shaker (about a third full), add the above ingredients, and shake to mix and chill.
Add ice to a pair of 8 oz. glasses, fill with the contents of the shaker, add a wedge of lime and get the party started.
