We are officially smack dab in the middle of summer. Have you taken a trip to the river? The beach? The mountains? The desert? If you live in Southern California, you can do all of these things in one summer. I know, I’m bragging. And spoiled. But I am sure you’ve at least done one of these things – and if you haven´t, GO!

Anytime I head to the beach I am always craving something fresh, something salty, and something iceeee cold. This margarita recipe meets every single one of these requirements! All I need is my beach towel, swimsuit, and a refreshing margarita to turn a hot summer day into a fantastically memorable day in paradise. Enjoy!

Agave Magaritas

Ingredients

  • 1 lime wedge
  • Kosher salt
  • Ice
  • 2 ounces silver tequila
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce light agave nectar

Instructions

  1. Moisten half of the outer rim of a glass with the lime wedge (that way, you get salty on one side, but it doesn’t overpower the drink!) and twist the edge into a saucer full of kosher salt.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
  3. Add the tequila, lime juice and agave nectar.
  4. Shake well and strain into the glass.
