mayahuel_codex_riosMayahuel was the Aztec Goddess of the maguey of which the agave is a type.  She was the mother of the “400 rabbit” gods of drunkenness.  This margarita plays on the agave with tequila, agave orange liqueur, and agave nectar.   I use Maestro Dobel Diamond Tequila or you can use Hornitos.  I find both of these tequilas one-dimensional with a spicy pepper note which actually plays well here.  You can easily use any good white tequila.

  • 1 ½ oz. Maestro Dobel Diamond Tequila
  • 1 ½ oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1 1/2 oz. Agavero Orange Liqueur
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Agave Nectar
  • Pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Chill margarita glass with a few ice cubes and water
  2. To a shaker add all of the ingredients.
  3. Shake with ice until shaker is frosted 10-15 sec
  4. Strain into chilled glass
