According to Foodimentary, the original recipe for the Margarita was made of equal parts tequila, orange liquor and lime, served over ice with a salt-rimmed glass. Even on a chilly February day that sounds so good.
Ay, chihuahua! is an idiom which also expresses surprise as if to say "Wow, there are so many!" And there really are many creative alternatives to the traditional Margarita with which to raise a glass in celebration like the Cucumber Margarita or the Ay Diablo Margarita at Chicago's ¡AY CHIWOWA! Tavern.
1.5 oz corzo resposado
1 oz cucumber juice fresh
.5 oz of pomelo grapefruit
.5 oz mariposa
1 oz agave nectar
1 oz lime juice
Shake and serve in a margarita glass (salted rim optional).
¡Tequila and Tacos!
Try pairing the Cucumber Margarita with Shrimp Tostadas (adobo shrimp, corn tomato cream, pickled onion, and cilantro), Shrimp Adobo Tacos (shrimp, refried beans, and queso fresco), Blackened Fish Tacos (tilapia, seasoning, mango aioli, and corn salsa) or Barbacoa Tacos (short rib barbacoa and watercress salad).
