Hi this is Lauden Vergara, and I'm with ABC Bartending Schools here in Miami, Florida. In this clip I'm going to show you how to make a lemon margarita. Typically what is a margarita? Well it's tequila, triple sec, which is an orange flavor liqueur and some sour mix, which is a concentrated lemon-lime flavor, but mostly lime, that's what it usually takes in a margarita, but this is a different flavor, we're going to do a lemon margarita. Lets start off with a mixing glass, about 2/3 of the way with ice, okay. We're going to use a nice tequila, Cuervo for instance is a very nice tequila for margaritas, it's full in flavor and it doesn't hide as easy, okay. Then we're going to use some triple sec, meaning your orange flavor liqueur, there's a lot of different brands, so it really doesn't matter which one you use; so about 2 counts of that. I'm going to put some sour mix in there, that's what's going to give it your nice head, okay. You can find this anywhere, in any grocery store, any liquor store, simply sour mix, it says whiskey sour mix, you'll find it, okay, no big deal. For this you're going to add some lemon juice to it, some extra lemon juice, even though your sour mix has lemon in it, you're going to add some extra. So we're going to cut off the ends of the lemon, cut some more, cut it in half and give it a nice squeeze in there, get that lemon juice all the way in there, the more lemon the better, right, because this is a lemon margarita; that's why you want to cover all those, okay. You want to go ahead and give that a nice shake. The sour mix doesn't blend very well with alcohol, so you need to give it a good shake, okay. You want to go ahead and pour that into your glass. Look at that, doesn't that look refreshing, see the lemon seeds all floating. Then you want to garnish it maybe a little nice piece of lemon along the side, and voila, that is your lemon margarita. This is Lauden, thank you very much for watching.
