Last night I fell in love
. We met at a quiet bar
at Laclede's Landing
. One look and I felt my heart leap with joy
. She shasay
ed up to my table in a cute
little server's outfit which was a little too tight
. Her shirt was tied against her stomach
, hinting at the gorgeous flat abs
that lay underneath. She smiled and set down my drink
, flipped her hair
and charged me $9. I was happy to pay.
Once that stupid little tramp left, we were alone at last. Me and my frozen blue agave margarita. It was in a giant fishbowl of a glass, lined with sweetened salt and a perfectly round lime garnish. I put the straw to my lips and slowly drew in the best margarita I've ever had.
The blue agave is, by nature, a sweeter margarita. It's very delicate and requires just the right amount of swirling or blending. Too much and it foams up; too little and it loses its flavor. This one was made to perfection. By the time I'd finished, I felt like I could conquer the world. Our evening was brief--only an hour long--but I can't wait to do it again.
To make your own blue agave margarita, you'd need:
1.5-2 oz 100% Agave Tequila--NOT the cheap kind
1-1.5 oz Blue Curacao
1.5 oz Lime juice
Sea salt or kosher rock salt, mixed lightly with sugar
lime wedges or garnish
Serve frozen or on the rocks.
**I've heard people suggest that it's better served on the rocks. In my estimation, adding a little extra curacao and tequila makes it a great frozen drink, as well.**
