This is a variation on the popular classic Margerita cocktail. It is stronger than the traditional version and has a distinct cactus-y taste of it's own from using Agave syrup instead of Sour Mix.
60ml Reposado Tequila
30ml Limoncello liqueur
30ml Agave syrup
15ml Lemon juice
15ml Lime juice
Shake ingredients well with ice, strain into Margerita glass or Martini glass (salt-rimmed is optional) and serve.
This is a great cocktail for small parties with just a few guests, or for a quiet romantic night with your partner. The only ingredient that can be troublesome is the Limoncello, being an expensive Liqueur. If price is an issue, Triple Sec works just as well, though the cocktail does lose some of the aroma as a result.
Recommended for tequila lovers, citrus lovers and anyone who enjoys an original take on a classic recipe.
