The Secret To Blending the Perfect Margarita

By in ACT! e-Marketing Copywriting Tips | 2 comments

Day 217/365I just love working with my Texas friends and clients. They always know the biggest and best recipes for having a good time. Years ago I worked with one of the country’s largest telecommunications companies, teaching their salespeople all about direct marketing.

Whether we were done with training or not, when it was happy hour in Texas, it was happy hour in Texas. That was the first time I learned that you could order pitchers of margaritas while you waited for appetizer trays of jalepeno poppers.

My most favorite Texan taught me how to make the perfect margarita. “Pick the cheapest, off-brand bottle of tequila you can find,” he instructed. “The cheaper the better.”

Who knew? He was right!

Here’s his famous recipe, for which the statute of limitations has expired on my promise to keep it a secret from other yanquis (non-Texans).

Dale’s Famous Perfect Margarita

  • 1 can frozen limeade concentrate
  • Cheap tequila
  • Cheap triple sec
  • Grand Marnier
  • Water (optional)

Dump the limeade into the blender. Fill the limeade can once each with the cheap tequila, the cheap triple sec and Grand Marnier. Add 1/2 can of water if you must (obviously, you’re a yanqui). Blend for about 10 seconds. Remove half the mixture and reserve it in the refrigerator. Fill the blender with ice, and blend till the ice is chopped.  Run a lime wedge over the rim of the glass, then dip the rim in kosher salt. Pour. Repeat with reserved mix.

Cinco de Mayo–felicidades, amigos!
