Maggie May

A lot of my friends still turn their noses up when I suggest we indulge in Tequila instead of Rum or Whisky. The problem for them is that the taste of strong tequila is just a little too wild for their Canadian palate. I came up with Maggie May as a sort of a compromise indulgence to keep my friends (as well as me) happy when I bring a bottle of the agave spirit.

Maggie May is of course a reference to the classic 1971 rock ballad written and sung by Rod Stewart. Just as his song is a softer take on Rock and Roll, my cocktail is constructed to be a softer take on the classic Margarita Cocktail.

Maggie May

3/4 oz Vodka
3/4 oz Reposado Tequila
3/4 oz Triple Sec
3/4 oz fresh Lime Juice
1 tsp Sugar Syrup (1:1 ratio)
Lime Slice for garnish

Chill a cocktail glass
Place the Vodka, Tequila, Lime Juice, Triple Sec, and Sugar Syrup into a metal shaker
Shake until the outside of the shaker frosts
Strain into the chilled cocktail glass
Garnish with a slice of Lime
Please Enjoy Responsibly!
