Happy Cinco de Mayo!

By Christopher Ellis-Jacobs

Most people make their margarita with tequila, which by definition has to be made in Mexico from 100% agave. We like to make our margaritas with agave spirit from Wiggly Bridge in York, ME. (You can think Champagne vs. sparkling wine)

Here is our simple office recipe:

2oz Wiggly Bridge Anejo agave spirit

1oz fresh squeezed lime juice

1oz Cointreau

a little squeeze of agave

a dash of salt

shake vigorously over ice and pour into a rocks glass.

It is simple.

It is strong.

It is delicious.

Enjoy it with another office favorite:

quick guacamole!

2 ripe avocados

.75oz fresh lime juice

1/4 Cup chopped cilantro

1/4 Cup shallot, minced

1/4 Cup jalapeno, minced

1/4 Cup red bell pepper, minced

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons salt

2 teaspoons Aleppo pepper

Mash together, wait 10 minutes for flavors to meld and taste to adjust salt and lime.

Now it’s time to party!
