Champagne Margarita
I love Champagne with a steely tang that brings all my taste buds alive, that makes anyone’s mood a good one — and that makes me hungry for a few salty nuts or practically any rich mouthful. Same goes, at least for me, when it comes to margaritas: tangy is enlivening, sweet really isn’t.And, if you put the two together — a bracing Champagne and a limey margarita — you’ve got what I’d consider the best of both sides of the Atlantic.

Margarita
This recipe is derived from my dad’s amazing margaritas. During the summer, he’s the margarita-maker. I don’t know what he does, but I can never seem to recreate the slightly-tart, slightly-sweet, and oh-so-easy-to-drink cocktail he creates. Here, I sub half the lime juice for blood orange juice. Just remember: The key to the recipe is equal parts juice to triple sec to tequila. I’ve dabbled with using both triple sec and Grand Marnier in the drink. I find a smoother taste comes from using good-quality triple sec (not the $5 stuff in the grocery store). And NEVER use anything but fresh lime juice — preferably from room temperature limes. This recipe calls for serving the margarita up, but you can also serve it over rocks. A salt rim is up to you... But forgetting the Chunky Guacamole with chips is a crime.

perfect margarita
What makes this rendition perfect, you might ask? "The secret is to use fresh juice," reveals Alex Alejandro of El Parador Café, New York City's longest living Mexican restaurant. Fresh lemon juice, that is. Alex explains that lemon juice is used instead of lime because it is less tart and doesn't mask the flavor of the tequila. Other tips? There should be equal parts tequila and triple sec, and always serve it straight up and with salt. If it's on the rocks, he says, the flavor of the margarita gets too diluted by the time you reach the bottom of the glass. "Once you taste a perfect margarita, you can't go back."
