Mexico: Frozen Lime Margarita

Sorry for the delay in this last post in the Drink Around the World series.  Check out my twitter for some explanation.  Anyway...

Here we are at our final stop on our tour around world showcase at home, Mexico!

In Epcot, Mexico is one of the best places to get a specialty drink.  The margarita options there are basically endless.  You can smell the tequila in La Cava de Tequila before you see it!  But to save on buying ingredients, for our drink around the world, we'll just make a simple frozen Lime Margarita, found at the margarita stand out front!

To make one frozen lime margarita, you will need:
  • 1 1/2 oz. (1 shot) tequila
  • 3 oz. sweet and sour mix
  • 1 1/2 oz. simple syrup (made by boiling down sugar with water)
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1 cup ice
  • Salt (for garnish)
To make the drink, you will first need to create the simple syrup.  To do this, simply add 2 parts sugar to one part water (you'll want to make a little more than needed for this drink to be sure that too much water doesn't boil off).  Boil until all of the sugar has dissolved, and let sit until cool.

Add all of the ingredients to a blender with ice.  Blend on high until all of the ice cubes have been broken into small pieces.  Rim your glass in salt. (If using regular table salt and not margarita salt, be sure to use a lot less than shown in the main picture.)  Add the frozen drink to the glass and serve with a straw (also not pictured).  And that's it!

So what did you think about Drink Around the World at Home? 
Would you have chosen to make any different drinks?
Are you going to give this a try with a few friends?
