When in Rome

It is important as an ex-pat to make an effort to adopt to local customs. This was the reason for embracing National Margarita Day on Friday. Rather than sup wine to end the week, I made Margaritas; oh the hardship one must endure.

There are very many variations on the Margarita, the one that I made reflected my preferred recipe for a Sidecar; a 4-2-1 ratio. Each drink had 2oz of Tequila, 1oz of Grand Marnier and 1/2oz of freshly squeezed lime juice. This made the Tequila the focus of the drink, rather than the lime.
