Today I have a new drink for you to make and share with a few friends on a hot summer evening on the patio with a few munchies. This must be served COLD and, when served with lime wedges, exquisite.
- 1/3 cup fine sugar
- 2/3 cup fresh lime juice
- 1/2 cup Tequila
- 2 x 355 ml bottles of Corona, chilled
- pinch of salt
- 2 tsp. fine sugar
- lime wedges
Boil together the sugar and 1/3 cup of the lime juice until the sugar completely dissolves (about 2 minutes).
Pour into a pitcher along with the remaining lime juice and Tequila. Place in the refrigerator for a minimum of 45 minutes to get cold. Remove from the refrigerator and slowly pour in the Corona and ice cubes just before serving.
Combine the salt and sugar on a small plate. Run a lime wedge around the rim of 4 glasses, then dip into the mixture. Pour in the tequila mixture EQUALLY in the four glasses, add a lime wedge and you have just become a patio hero.
Make sure you have salty munchies such as chips, popcorn or crackers and cheese.
