Fresh Margaritas!

4 teaspoons grated lime zest
1/2 cup lime juice (from 2-3 limes)
4 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1/2 cup lemon juice (from 2-3 lemons)
1/4 cup superfine sugar
Pinch salt
2 cups crushed ice
1 cup 100% agave tequila, preferably reposado
1 cup Triple Sec

Combine lime zest and juice, lemon zest and juice, sugar, and salt in large liquid measuring cup; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until flavors meld, 4-24 hours.

Divide 1 cup crushed ice between 4-6 margarita glasses. Strain juice mixture into 1-quart pitcher or cocktail shaker. Add tequila, Triple Sec, and remaining crushed ice; stir or shake until thoroughly combined and chilled, 20-60 seconds. Strain into ice-filled glasses and serve immediately.

Makes about 1 quart, serving 4-6

I remember that you bought me salt and margarita mix for my 21st birthday.

I don't know if you remember me, but I stumbled across this blog, and said, hey, that's Eli from Gaia House.

It's hard to believe freshmen year was thirteen years ago. Remember Medieval Studies? And inner-tube water polo?
