12 Drinks of Christmas Day #3 .. The Day Before the Big Day: Christmas!!

While I was noodling around trying to figure out what to suggest that you might have to drink or invest in some high end liquor.. Thrillist.com came out with this cool video online about the $100 Margarita.
WHY would a margarita cost that much? Part of it is the labor but you can sub a chef making lime sorbet for buying the lime sorbet. The liquor is premium aged tequilas and other spirits.
Here’s the link to the video: hopefully you can find it.

It would not let me embed the video despite it having the “embed code” on the video. Go figure– Thrillist’s tech issues can sometime take the THRILL out of getting to their site or their content.

Here is a very good recipe for a Margarita. You might be wondering why I am choosing to feature a margarita for the 12 Drinks of Christmas.
1) It’s sort of green
2) It’s got a great non-sweet taste and the tequila has a bit of bite to it.
3) I am doing a “Mexican Christmas” this year– complete with enchiladas, tamales, black beans and fresh guamole- and lots of salsa.
4) You can use the really good tequila you buy for other drinks that I mentioned yesterday or the ones that are yet to come. (I have quite the repetoire this year).
5) Also if you hit a restaurant, bar or lounge you can order a “call” drink that will have the bartender fairly impressed.

(Bartender Jason Hopper of Santacafe in Santa Fe, New Mexico, won the First Annual Grand Margarita Contest in May with this traditional rendition.)

2 ounces Chinaco Reposada Tequila

1 ounce Grand Marnier

2 ounces fresh lime juice.

Pour all ingredients over ice into a tall mixing glass and shake briskly. Strain into a chilled glass with a salted rim and garnish with lime wheel.

If you want more of a slushy drink, you could use some lime sorbet mixed with lime juice (fresh or Volcano Lime Juice) and refrozen. Try that for an interesting twist on this recipe.

Merry Christmas and have one for me. Have two if you are assembling toys for kids tonight
