Three Margaritas

It can get well over 140 degrees in the salt tent when it hits the mid-90s outside. For those of you living in the lowcountry, you can only imagine what that meant this past week, so we tested out some margaritas for you. (Margarita salt on the rim, of course.) There are three recipes below that have been tweaked and adapted from different sources, let us know what you think or send us some of your own! We love trying out other recipes.

The steps are pretty simple, all you need to do is blend the ingredients together and pour into your salted glass. We've found that using a tiny amount of agave around the rim leaves a prettier finish since it catches and holds more salt! If you're in need of some margarita salt, you can purchase some in our store: Margarita Salt. Each recipe serves 1.
