Margarita Research

I’ve been marinading in tequila over the last few weeks as I research Margarita recipes. The classic Margarita traditionally consists of three ingredients:


Triple Sec orange liqueur

Lime juice

in a 2:1:1 formula.

This tends to produce a drink which is a little on the sour side of balanced, hence it is common to subtly up the degree of sweetness by adding sugar or agave syrup.

The 2:1:1 formula works well either served straight-up or on the rocks. However, if blending to serve frozen then then drink will benefit from raising the degree of sweetness.

A pinch of salt subtly enhances the drink’s flavour. Although the salted rim is synonymous with the drink, it delivers an intense hit of salt which masks the flavour of the drink.

Choctails® was founded by husband and wife team Simon and Hilary Delamare. Simon's suggestion of putting cocktail flavours into chocolate took Hilary's chocolate-making hobby to new heights, until in May 2012, the decision was made to turn the hobby into a full time business. The domestic kitchen became a production factory by day, and the dining room was given up to become a place where hand-made chocolate is crafted
