Sauza Hornitos Margarita

Happy cinco de mayo everyone!

In my opinion, Sauza hornitos reposado tequila makes the best tasting margarita, at least of any tequila that I can afford to put in a margarita.

Tequila, lime juice and a little simple syrup. Shake with ice. Serve on the rocks in a glass with a salted rim.

The lime juice is organic 100 % lime juice which is much better than Rose's lime juice (yuck). I would have squeezed fresh limes, and garnished with lime, except I didn't have any.

The simple syrup is just sugar and water (50 % by weight) heated to dissolve then chilled. Unlike pastry simple syrup, it's not reduced 50 %. I always keep some in the refrigerator for drinks like this.
