I mean, there’s no WRONG way… But much more sour than sweet, on the rocks, and preferably made with not too trashy of a tequila. With all that being said, though, I’d take a sweet, frozen, made with the cheapest of cheap tequilas margarita if someone gave it to me
We were just at Disneyworld last week and I uncharacteristically bought a margarita from the pool bar, but it was made with lime Dole whip, rimmed with spicy salt. Normally I don’t go for sweet drinks, but that really went down easily in the heat.
@guyfromhawthorn@togle Hmm I guess DisneyWorld (the park area) has changed. At the time I was there 25 yrs ago most alcohol was pretty-much verboten, except a few of the dine-in restaurants. My wife and I went to the pretend-French restaurant by the lake and I had a glass of wine and felt that it was strange even doing that at DisneyWorld. I think we were trying to fill up time to wait for the fireworks which were actually pretty good for a non-special event (they did them every night, then, I think?).
Also BTW maybe urban myth, but apparently if you die at DisneyWorld they quietly send you away on secret underground tunnels. Since this is Meh I figured that was a useful fact for someone. In case you ever plan to die at DisneyWorld…
@00 my wife takes hers sin sal, I don’t. We were in Sacramento one time, having a couple of margaritas with lunch.
Toward the end, the waitress came by and asked if we’d like another round. I was good, but my wife was conflicted, so I offered to share one with her. The waitress asked if we wanted it salted or not, and I laughed and said, “make it half and half”. She looked confused, so I said just kidding, it’s her drink so no salt.
She came back with the drink a couple of minutes later, and someone had perfectly salted half of the rim. She got an extra good tip.
Back in the day I was invited to a convention for users of a certain kind of computer system, and while walking the floor before the show started, I came across a company from the other side of the country who couldn’t get their system running, and whose comm gear hadn’t made the trip with them, so even if they got the system up, they wouldn’t be able to do anything with it. I spent a couple of hours troubleshooting the computer and lining up some equipment loans from other folks I knew at the show.
Long story short, they were all good to go before the show started. Their Sales VP wanted to know how they could repay me and I told him, “just buy me a margarita sometime”.
Later that day, I’m at the booth with the folks who invited me when a guy from the hotel shows up with a large food cart and asks if I’m me, and when I admit that I am, he unveils the cart’s contents, which is a large aquarium tank filled with margarita. I honestly have no idea how many gallons this thing was, but I was giving margaritas away for a couple of hours.
