Happy National Margarita Day!

Ms. China Moon’s Mean Green Moon-a-Rita for Feb. 22nd is the mid-week DOTW recipe today.

You’ll be needing the following:

1) 2 oz. Blanco Tequila
2) .50-.75 oz. Triple Sec/Orange Liqueur
3) Blue Agave syrup or nectar
4) Juice of half a lime
5) Any 2-berries you want (I chose blueberries & raspberries for sweet & slight tartness)

Rim your glass by rotating half or the whole rim in lime juice and dipping in margarita salt; shake off excess. Set aside.

In a Boston shaker, muddle your berries, syrup/nectar and a sliver of lime.
