Despite a deep and rich musical tradition, Mexico doesn’t produce a whole lot of jazz. But my lovely bride really wanted margaritas this afternoon, and who am I to say no to that?

So I did some digging, and then some more digging, and discovered Magos Herrera from Mexico City. She has a lovely voice, great control, and her band has a sound just right for sunshine, a deck chair, and an icy margarita.

You’ll need:

4 ounces Patron Silver
1 ounce fresh-squeezed lime juice
1.5 ounces (that’s 1 jigger) Cointreau
2 lime wedges
Plenty of ice

Salt the rims of two margarita glasses, and put a handful of ice in each. Fill your cocktail shaker with ice, pour in your ingredients. I always go in this order: Lime, Cointreau, Patron. Does it matter? Probably not. Give it a few gentle shakes, then strain the mixture into the glasses. Garnish with lime.

Here’s one of the two I just made. Melissa has already wandered off to the deck with hers.
