For our readers outside of the Pacific Northwest, when it gets above eighty degrees, folks in western Washington turn into veritable girls’ blouses. With temperatures in the nineties and high humidity, it is the equivalent of snow in Texas. Watercooler conversation at offices around Puget Sound revolve around how we survived the unbearable heat; how many fans we have running, should we buy an air conditioner, do I smell, etc.
It is true that we are having a pretty hot and saucy summer. Fortunately, I have the antidote thanks to Tate of Sundowner Sails Again. Tate and Dani are refitting a Westsail 32 in New Orleans so they know from heat; and humidity.
Tate’s recipe for Margaritas leaped into my reptilian brain this afternoon as I was anticipating another hot, sweaty evening with my feet in the Koi pond. When Melissa came home from a hard day of therapeutic listening, I had drinks, chips and Salsa Fresca ready for her.
Tate’s 3-2-1 Margaritas
- 3 parts Anejo Tequila (we prefer Hornitos)
- 2 parts Fresh Squeezed Lime
- 1 part Triple Sec
Mix ingredients in whatever container you have handy, a large jar with a twist on top works best. Shake around with some ice, and pour on the rocks or plain.
Salt the rim if you wish.
Easy as 1, 2, 3 .
