At the end of the work week, some people wind down with a nice glass of wine, others with a good ale and then there’s the weekend. Everyone enjoys letting loose and a good margarita is one of the best ways to let loose and have fun. There are many ways to make a margarita and endless flavors, but there are a few things that make the best margarita. The margarita is a drink that is better made shaken, not stirred. Try adding sugar to the salt rim, or make the rim completely out of crushed hard candy instead of salt. Always remember that when making a cocktail, creativity is welcomed.
