the bartender :
A well-crafted margarita, tart and not too sweet, served ice cold in a big salt-rimmed glass Ö now thatís mighty tasty. The margarita is a very useful cocktail to have in your drink-mixing repertoire because just about everyone likes them. You can make them straight up, on the rocks, or frozen, and create variations on the classic with simple additions like fresh fruit and flavored liqueurs.
What goes in ...
Tequila is divided into three basic categories: blanco/silver, reposado, and aŮejo. Blanco is tequila thatís bottled without aging, so that it retains the pure, strong flavor of freshly distilled blue agave. Reposado has been aged in oak for between two months and one year; aŮejo is anything thatís been aged for more than a year. A prime-quality aŮejo would be completed wasted in a cocktail, as all those subtleties of flavor that make it the fine drink it is would be overwhelmed by the other ingredients. A blanco, on the other hand, or a good value reposado, is perfect for making margaritas. All this is good, since itís unlikely you can afford a premium aŮejo anyway.
