Confession: I’ve never had a margarita. I didn’t think Tequila was my thing. New Confession: I just needed to try good Tequila. Enter: Agavero Orange and Gran Centenario.
My girlfriends and I were meeting to watch Luann’s one-on-one special on Bravo and this seemed like the perfect time to try my first margarita, especially since I’d have my girls to guide me. Because let’s be honest, as much as we wanted to watch this half hour special, I knew we’d spent hours just talking, laughing, and being ridiculous in the best way.
So, I have my girls to thank for helping me make (and drink) my first margarita.
Here’s the recipe we followed, keeping it simple. Honestly, it was so easy I can’t believe I haven’t tried it before.
1 part Agavero Orange Tequila
1.5 parts Gran Centenario
1 part Triple Sec
1/3 part Lime Juice
1/3 part simple syrup
I learned to make simple syrup from watching my friend which turns out is actually super simple. Just boil water and add sugar and stir. Once combined then let it cool so it doesn’t warm your icy and refreshing margarita.
As for those fun and yummy sugared rims? Cut a lime for the edge of the glass and just slide it on and turn to coat the entire rim in juice. Then remove the lime to put the glass in sugar and put the lime back on.
My girls were on point and now I know that I can make a margarita on my own the next time they come over. The Agavero Orange and the Gran Centenario was so smooth. Honestly, we loved it on the rocks and next time we get together after we a book signing we’re going to together, I’d like to try them frozen. We all agreed that the orange flavor was subtle and perfect since so many recipes add orange juice anyway!
I had such a good time with the girls and I needed that time. The margaritas were just an excellent (quite excellent and highly recommended) bonus!
