Discovery of the day: Partida Organic Agave Nectar
For those of you who don't like margaritas because the sweet and sour makes your teeth squeak, have we got a discovery for you: agave nectar.
At a Partida Tequila tasting at Lola this week, we got to sample Partida's 100 percent organic agave nectar -- clean-tasting, sweet, not as cloying as honey, available at speciality grocers like Whole Foods, and absolutely delicious in a marg. Just sample the recipe on the next page:
Partida Agave Nectar Margarita 1-1/2 ounces Tequila 1 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice (juice of one lime) 3/4 ounce Agave nectar (to taste) 4/5 ounce pure water
Shake all ingredients with ice in shaker. Serve in glass on rocks. No garnish, no salt.
