When asked what their favorite cocktails are, lots of people will respond with “margarita!” Usually, though, what they’re thinking of is one of those frozen concoctions that comes out of something that looks like a machine you see at the convenience store. While those are fine and dandy, and hey, even I like to indulge in one once in a while, there’s something else out there. Margarita on the rocks.
Instead of being blended, and then sweetened with fruit, a classic margarita on the rocks lets the quality ingredients shine through. Because it’s so unadulterated, you’ll want to use good quality liquors and fresh juices for this cocktail. And let’s be honest – a margarita on the rocks lends an air of sophistication to any get together.
How to Make a Classic Margarita on the Rocks
One of the great things about a classic margarita on the rocks is that it can be made in large batches. Much like the Smoked Apple Margarita, it’s great cocktail for entertaining. This particular recipe serves 8, but can easily be doubled.
