  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Beverages

 Ingredients List

  • 1 Lime, cut into 5 slices
  • Margarita or kosher salt
  • 2 oz Anejo tequila
  • 1 oz Orange liqueur*
  • 1 tb Freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 Coffee cup ice cubes


*such as Triple Sec

Arrange 3 lime slices on a small plate and cover another plate with the
salt to a depth of 1/4 inch. Place a martini glass upside down on the limes
and press and turn to dampen. Then dip in the salt to coat the rim.

Combine the tequila, orange liqueur, lemon juice and ice in a blender.
Blend at high speed until smooth. Pour into the prepared glass, garnish
with the remaining lime slices and serve.


To make 8 margaritas, mix 2 cups tequila, 1 cup Triple Sec and 1/2 cup
freshly squeezed lemon juice. Prepare in 3 batches; shake or blend a third
of the mix with about 1 coffee cup ice for each batch.

Editor's note: The Border Grill is Milliken's & Feniger's wildly wonderful
restaurant that celebrates the flavors of Mexico. Located at 1445 4th
Street in Santa Monica, CA, many of the recipes that have made this
restaurant so popular appear in the owners' latest book Mesa Mexicana. For
those living in the Los Angeles area, tune into Mary Sue & Susan's new hit
show "Good Food" on KCRW (89.9 FM), Fridays at 2:00pm.
