The favourite summer cocktail

I am one of those guys who prefer my cocktails short and really strong. My favorite drinks all contain strong alcohol mixed with…strong alcohol. Manhattan, Sazerac and Old fashioned are on the top 5 list. All of them lack juices, mixed fruits and lemonade. And it is good so. However, now when the summer arrives I get a craving for Margaritas. This was the most ordered drink  by me the last summer and it will, most likely also be the case this summer. In my Margarita I add a pinch of sugar to get a smoother taste. A perfect Margarita out of a salted glass is the perfect company on the balcony.


  • 3 parts Tequila (6 cl)
  • 1 part Cointreau (2 cl)
  • 2 parts lime (4 cl)
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • salt

Start with the glass. Rim the glass by rubbing the rim with a lime wedge and dipping it into a saucer of salt. Combine all other ingredients in a cocktail shaker with loads of cracked ice. Shake well and strain into the salted cocktail glass. Enjoy!
