Margarita Cocktail (Serves 1)
Recently I’ve been rediscovering the joys of this cocktail! It’s pretty much the quintessential drink for a summer evening, but who really needs that excuse?!…
50ml tequila blanco
25ml lime juice
A handful of ice-cubes
Salt and 2 lime wedges to garnish
- Sprinkle a few teaspoons of salt onto a small saucer. Rub one wedge of lime along the rim of your glass, then dip it into the salt so that the entire rim is covered.
- Put the tequila, lime juice and Cointreau into a cocktail shaker then add a handful of ice and shake for 15 seconds until cold.
- Strain the liquid into your prepared glass and serve with a wedge of lime. Enjoy!

Cooking has always been something I have enjoyed, I have an extensive collection of cookbooks, some are well thumbed whilst others collect dust on the shelves; I can’t bear to get rid of any cook book, just in case one day I might use it for that one obscure recipe - light on a rainy day!
I enjoy eating out and discovering new flavours, whether it’s just a local haunt or a ‘dress up’ to dinner restaurant - food is my hobby! In my opinion food is the one of the most important pieces of knowledge you need to know about any culture in order to really understand it, so when we go away, it’s not the local sights that I’m googling but the best place to eat!
I am not one of those fortunate cooks who can throw something together by looking at the contents of their fridge, I need a plan to work with, then I organise my fridge around the recipe. I am however a very organised person, you might even call me a control freak! I love the orderly fashion of a recipe, I find it soothing to have a plan in front of me, so the thought of trawling through my recipe books and trying new recipes is my idea of a perfect afternoon. But I realise that this is not everyones idea of fun, hence the birth of this blog. This blog is essentially for people who adore food but don’t have the time, patience or energy to search through cook books to find that winning recipe – that’s the job of Menu Mistress!
