I LOVE margaritas. Not neon, slushy, syrupy margaritas, but fresh juice, good tequila, sour ones. In early celebration of Cinco de Mayo, I offer you this recipe.

Lime Margaritas
Makes 2

2lbs key limes, juiced- regular limes are less labor intensive, but I like the flavor of key limes a bit more. Either one works though. You're going for about 3/4 c. of juice
1 1/2 tbsp. agave nectar
2 oz. tequila
1 oz. triple sec or Grand Marnier
Course salt for rim

Stir together lime juice and agave nectar.
Rub a quarter of a lime around the rim of two glasses. Dip the glasses in salt to cover the rims.
Pour 1oz tequila, 1/2 oz. of Triple sec and ice into each glass. Split juice among the two glasses and stir.

We're off to Cuba for the next week. See you when we get back! Adios!
