Last Week of Summer

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

The autumnal equinox is almost here! September 22 at 5:19 pm EDT, to be exact (US Naval Observatory).

Grab your friends and toast to these last few days of summer with margaritas… clean, refreshing agave margaritas! Beautiful, pure, 100% agave tequila is something to be sipped and savored, much like a fine scotch.

The secret to concocting the perfect margarita is: keep it simple! Use the juices of fresh fruits and pure, organic agave nectar. Not is only agave nectar that ethereal match to tequila that nature intended, it is a sweet that dissolves in cold water and is vegan friendly.

  1. 1 1/2 ozĀ  100% Agave tequila
  2. 1/2 oz Pure Organic Light Agave
  3. juice of one small lime
  4. fresh squeeze of orange
  5. splash of spring water

Shake well and serve over ice.

To salt a rim, pour sea or kosher salt on a small plate. Moisten the rim of your glass with a fresh lime wedge. Roll the rim (or half) in the salt. To add some flare, add a little black pepper, cumin or cayenne to your salt.

Raise your glass and say “adios” to summer!

That’s a lot of margaritas!

But if you can hang on to some… delicious, raw, organic agave nectar sweetens hot teas and yummy oatmeals on brisk fall mornings.
