1.Tequila comes in five categories based on the length of aging process Blanco, Joven Añejo, Reposado , Añejo and Extra Añejo. The Extra Añejo is tequila at its best. Highly recommended brands of tequila are Patron, Cabo Wabo, Sauza, Don Julio, Jose Cuevo, Corralejo, Herradura and Chinaco.
2.Triple sec sweetens a drink. Adding more Triple sec makes the mixture sweeter. Suggested brands are those made from brandy or Cognac.
3.For those who do not like the touch of salt in the lips but like the taste of it in the drink, add a dash of salt directly to the margarita. Some may prefer sugar instead of salt. In this case, just substitute the salt with sugar.
4.If the mixture is too thick, you can add limejuice. If it is too thin, add more ice.
5.Adding fruits like strawberries, raspberry or banana gives the drink a variation. Mix this with the other ingredients and just follow the same steps above.
6.For a more frozen experience, chill the margarita glass for a few minutes before use.
1.Since frozen margarita is an alcoholic drink, consider the alcohol content of the tequila and triple sec. Most tequila come in 80 proof and triple sec in 60 proofs. Do not drive after taking a frozen margarita. Many countries and states prohibit driving when intoxicated with alcohol.
