Stone Cold Steve Austin, years ago, fired off this recipe in an interview on Hot Ones, the show where they eat hot wings. I wrote it down (slightly altered) and now it’s my favorite margarita recipe. My friend’s dad actually made the same mix years earlier and I remembered it being the best margarita I’d had.
Stone Cold calls it the “broken skull margarita”, but I don’t think we have to brand this as his because I don’t know copyright law and I’d had it before. At full strength this is a triple (it’s like 3 shots), so watch yourself. I use the lower quantities (1.5oz tequila, etc.) to make it a double.
Fresh limes make a big difference over bottled lime juice.
If you don’t have a martini shaker, you might have a shaker bottle (for protein drinks) lying around which works just as well.
