When done correctly, it’s a thing of beauty.

Classic Margarita

For the Lime Simple Syrup:
Juice and zest of 10 Limes
1 cup Granulated Sugar
2 cups Water

Mix all the ingredients together in a sauce pan and heat over medium high on the stove top. Bring just to a boil and stir to melt the sugar. Take off the heat and set aside to steep the limes and infuse the syrup (about 15 minutes). Strain and store in the fridge until ready to use.

For the Margaritas:
Add ice to a tall glass
2 parts Tequila
3 parts Lime Simple Syrup
Add a pinch of sea salt, sprinkled over the drink to garnish.
