PERFECT FROZEN MARGARITA                                                                        Sonoma Café

This recipe is dedicated to Keoni Fairbanks.  He has been trying to make the “Perfect” margarita for the past few years with differing degrees of success.  The first batch or two (he shakes his) come out O.K.  Towards the end of the evenings, the flavors and proportions have been somewhat unique!

18 oz. ice
3.75 oz. Cuervo 1800 Tequila Gold
2 oz. Cointreau or Triple Sec
3.5 oz. water
3 TBSP. sugar
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 TBSP. fresh lemon juice
½ egg white, lightly beaten
Margarita salt
 Lime slices for garnish

 In a blender, combine all ingredients except salt and lime slices, and blend until smooth.  Coat rims of margarita glasses with salt.  Pour into glasses.  Makes one 36-oz. Pitcher.
