What makes a classic margarita? Salt or no Salt? Grand Marnier or Triple Sec or neither? The SF Chronicle has a piece on the timely debate of what constitutes a margarita. My only quibble is it seems inconceivable that an article in a SF newspaper about margaritas, and tequila, would not include a peep about/from Tommy’s. Especially when it does include quotes from other less venerable drinking establishments.
Sometimes, you just need a slushy frozen adult beverage, yes? You don't need one of those fancy margaritaville frozen beverage machines to enjoy a frozen margarita at home.
Frozen Strawberry Margaritas
1/2 package of frozen strawberries (look at trader joe's if your grocery store doesn't carry them)
same amount of ice as strawberries to start (add more at the end if needed for texture)
1 can of limeade, still frozen (no extra water)
1 shot of grand marnier
4 shots of tequila (I prefer Herradura Silver)
Blend well. Drink immediately. Makes 4 servings.
