The Bar Is Open

We were going to have Mexican food for dinner tonight, so we decided to make margaritas. Our plans have since changed and we're having grilled chicken, instead. No need to make different drinks, though. These margaritas will be fantastic with any grilled food. They're a little sweet and a little sour, perfect for summertime get togethers! Alla vostra buona salute!

Italian Margaritas

  • 1 oz. amaretto

  • 2 oz. sweet and sour mix

  • 1/2 oz. tequila

  • 1/2 oz. triple sec

Mix all ingredients together and pour over ice into a salt rimmed glass. This recipe yields one drink. Our margarita glasses are quite large so we had to double the recipe for each glass.

Enjoy responsibly, please. Happy Friday, everyone!

Awesome, as always. I don't usually drink hard liquor so I kinda live (or drink would be more appropriate) vicariously through your Friday night posts.

I like my margaritas blended, though, on the rare occasion I drink one. How would you blend it? Just toss into a blender and pulse away?

See, that's why I prefer Sol. Just pop the tab and chug :)

I'm with LB, when they are blended they don't seem to hit me as hard, I'm a light weight :) Great Drink, as always!!!

The best thing about working for a summer as a server at Olive Garden was getting to sample all of their specialty drinks... this one was one of my favorites! Thanks for the recipe.
