It’s Friday night, and after a nice warm day in Berkeley, what better way is there to cool down than with a margarita? One of our favorites is the Cadillac margarita, which is as easy to make as it is to drink.
1-2 shots tequila
1 lime, squeezed
1 shot triple sec
Shake, pour over ice and enjoy. If you want it to truly be the “Cadillac of margaritas,” use good tequila and Grand Marnier instead of triple sec. But if you’re an average college student, you’ll do just fine without.
If you want a nicer margarita this evening, Comal on Shattuck Avenue is the place to go. With an open patio and a fire pit, it’s the perfect place to relax on a warm evening. It specializes in a variety of fine tequilas and have fantastically elegant margaritas (among other tequila cocktails, such as its famous swizzle) for $9. The eatery uses Cimarron Blanco tequila, orange-scented agave syrup and lime.
