5 O’ Clock Friday: La Chica Margarita

La Chica MargaritaDid you know Cinco de Mayo is celebrated more in the U.S. than it is in Mexico (figures…we’re always looking for a reason to throw a party or get together with friends!).  The below recipe comes to us from Margaritas Mexican Restaurant, currently celebrating their 25th anniversary in 23 locations throughout New England!  Enjoy!

La Chica Margarita

2 oz Silver Tequila
1 oz Gran Marnier
1/2 oz Agave Nectar
2 oz Fresh Squeeze Lime Juice
1 each Lime Wedge
1 pinch Kosher Salt

Chill martini or margarita glass.  Place salt on a flat plate.  Wet rim with lime wheel, turn glass upside down and touch rim with the salt.  Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Use a shaker that has a strainer.  Add liquid ingredients; adding the agave nectar last.  Shake very well.  Pour over ice or serve straight up.
