There was some family tension – Momma says it’s too good not to share, Dad said it’s too simple to bother writing down. But we convinced him!
He calls it the 1-2-3:
one part lime juice
two parts Cointreau (or similar orange liquor)
three parts tequila (or mescal or sotol or some EtOH made from agave)
Shake all three portions in a shaker with ice cubes for a minute or so, then pour into a previously salted fancy glass.
Momma likes hers on the rocks in a glass with half the rim salted and a lime wedge on the other half.
We keep a shallow, lidded plastic container with a blend of kosher salt and fancy Trader Joe’s Chile-Lime Seasoning. Dampen the rim of the glass with a lime wedge, then dip into the salt mix.
PLEASE DRINK RESPONSIBLY. Don’t get all liquored up and hurt somebody!
Note: Check out the comments. Dad is Fred, so Fred’s Wife is Momma. HIGH QUALITY TEQUILA MATTERS.
