The Classic Santo Margarita

The Classic Santo Margarita

2 oz Santo Blanco Tequila
1 oz Cointreau
1 oz lime juice
Salt

*Optional:
½ oz of Damiana Herb Liqueur
¼ teaspoon agave or simple syrup

Mix all ingredients except the salt in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass with salted rim.

SAMMY’S NOTE:
For a slightly sweeter margarita, use Key limes or Mexican limes – which are less acidic and make a better drink. This classic margarita comes out pretty sour (which I like) but the Key limes will naturally make the drink a little bit sweeter, with a pleasant tang. You can also add ½ ounce of Damiana (a Mexican aphrodisiac) to sweeten it up ever so slightly with a unique herbaceous flavor. If you want to kick it up, literally!
