It’s British Summer Time, and the sun is shining! What better excuse do you need to drink cocktails? My favourite is the Margarita. The combination of sour, sweet, salt and booze is unbeatable in my book.

Heaven in a Glass!


Limes – 2 small-medium

Sugar – 1 teaspoon

Silver Tequila – 1 fluid ounce

Triple Sec – ½ fluid ounce

Salt – in a salt shaker

Ice – 8 cubes

Equipment: Knife, citrus juicer, cocktail shaker, shot measure, margarita glass


  1. Half the limes, and juice them.
  2. Add to the cocktail shaker with the sugar, 2-3 ice cubes and the alcohol.
  3. Put the lid on and shake well until you can’t hear the ice (that means it’s melted).
  4. Take one on the juiced lime halves and rub it around the rim of the glass.
  5. Hold the glass over the sink, pointing downwards, and pour the salt over, turning the glass slowly, so the salt coats the rim.
  6. Add the rest of the ice to the glass and pour in the cocktail.
  7. Relax and enjoy!

Luckily he is really very good at barbecue cooking, so I handed over my burgers without any worries that they’d come back completely charred on the outside but raw in the middle. While he cooked I sat back, relaxed, and had a Margarita! […]
