The Border Grill's Cinco De Mayo Margarita

Author/Submitted by: Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger
Servings: 1
Categories: Alcoholic Beverages / Liqueur / Tequila / Triple Sec

1    Lime, cut into 5 slices
    Margarita salt
2  ounces  Anejo tequila
1  ounce  Orange liqueur, such as Triple Sec
1  tablespoon  Lemon juice, freshly squeezed
1/2    coffee cup ice cubes

1. Arrange 3 lime slices on a small plate and cover another plate with the salt to a depth of 1/4 inch. Place a martini glass upside down on the limes and press and turn to dampen. Then dip in the salt to coat the rim.

2. Combine the tequila, orange liqueur, lemon juice and ice in a blender. Blend at high speed until smooth. Pour into the prepared glass, garnish with the remaining lime slices and serve.

3. To make 8 margaritas, mix 2 cups tequila, 1 cup Triple Sec and 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice. Prepare in 3 batches; shake or blend a third of the mix with about 1 coffee cup ice for each batch.

Located at 1445 4th Street in Santa Monica, CA, many of the recipes that have made this restaurant so popular appear in the owners' latest book Mesa Mexicana.
