My son and husband enjoying a tasty beverage in San Diego during a dinner break from the RWA conference
Every restaurant we went to in Old Town, San Diego proclaimed they had the best margarita in San Diego. So naturally, my husband and I had to try them all. I found that one should never skimp on tequila. The bargain brand is never as good as the top shelf, but in the case of tequila it's worth the extra money not to have a cheap tequila hang over the next morning.
The best margarita we had came from a restaurant called El Agave, which was also a tequila museum. The best chips and dips came from the restaurant pictured above, Barra Barra Saloon.
My husband likes to mix drinks, so here's his version of . . .
The Perfect Margarita
2 ounces of Tres Generacions Anejo white tequila
4 ounces of Margaritaville margarita mix
1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
Pour all the ingredients over ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake it. Strain it. Pour it in a salted rim margarita ice.
