RECIPES & Measurements

Magellan Trader's Margarita Mix

Use these proportions:
1/3 tequila
1/3 triple sec (or cointreau or orange extract)
1/3 fresh lime juice

To salt the rim of the margarita glass: Use fresh lime juice and moisten the rim of the glass using a wedge of lime or lime juice in a shallow dish.

Dip up to 1/4 inch of the rim in a mixture of coarse table salt spread in a shallow dish, such as Kosher Salt, mixed 50/50 with sugar, to give it a sweeter taste.
You can use just plain coarse table salt.
You can even add some chili powder to the salt to give it a "kick"!

Be sure to ask your guests what their preference is before adding salt to the rim or chili powder to the salt.

How to serve Magellan Trader's Margarita

Put Magellan Trader's Margarita Mix in a cocktail shaker with cracked ice, shake three times and strain into the Margarita glass. You can serve the above mixture "on the rocks" over ice, by adding a few ice cubes to the glass before adding the strained mixture.

Garnish with a wedge of lime and enjoy!
