Once in a while we have to add one of the classic cocktails in here for completeness.  We’ve already made one type of Margarita, but let’s make the most generic kind.  This is the one that your friend who doesn’t know anything about bartending will make you.  It’s the one on the sweet and sour bottle.

  • 3 ounces of tequila (Jose Cuervo)
  • 1.5 ounces of triple sec
  • 2 splashes of sweet and sour (homemade)

Shake everything over ice, serve how you like – rocks, up, with salt, without.  Throw a lime wedge in there too!

Dave’s Thoughts:

  • It’s like the margarita you order at the local dive bar.  It will suffice.  Enough of them will get you drunk, but your not going to remember drinking it in the morning.
  • I cannot say how many better margaritas there are in the world, let’s go with a lot.
  • You can taste the tequila.  You can taste the sweet and sour.  There’s triple sec in here?

Tasting Notes:

  • Dave’s Rating: 3/10
  • Strength: 7/10
  • Sweetness: 6/10
  • What did you expect from a generic drink?
