Perfect Margarita & Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Recipes `




I'm picky about my margaritas and salsa!  So whenever we have them at home, I make them from scratch rather than store bought.  

In my travels, I have made many Latin American friends who were kind enough to share their recipes with me.  This is what I learned....

The Perfect Margarita 

The Mix 

6 limes
2 lemons
1 orange
1 cup water
1 cup sugar

Making the Perfect Margarita

2 oz. Silver Tequila
1 oz. Triple Sec  
2 oz. fresh squeezed citrus
1 oz. simple syrup 

Make the simple syrup!  Boil one cup water with one cup sugar until sugar dissolves.  Easy right?  

Squeeze all the citrus into one container.  

I like to keep the simple syrup and fresh squeezed citrus separate.  That way you can control the sugar content and sweetness level.  Some like their margaritas more tart than others and vice versa.  So taste and pour...make it the WAY YOU LIKE IT!  :) 

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

5 tomatillos washed with husks removed
1 white onion peeled a quartered
1 jalapeno 
3 cloves garlic in their skins
2 tbsp. olive oil
salt and pepper

Preheat over to 425.  Put everything on a large baking sheet and coat with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Roast 20 - 25 minutes.  They should start to turn brownish/ black in places!  That's where all the yummy flavor is living!  Remove the garlic a little early so it doesn't burn and remove from their skins. 

Put everything into a blender!  Blend it up adding a  little salt and pepper IF needed.  Add a little water if you want it thinner.  

Put this ALL OVER EVERYTHING!
