Margaretta. A Margaretta is tart and refreshing perfect for summer.

Q5. What is the perfect Summer’s day setting to enjoy the drink?

Sitting on my deck in the sunset looking out on Mt. Princeton (14K ft.)

Q6. Is there a right or wrong way to prepare the drink? i.e. Never drink without ice?

2 pts. fresh squeezed lime juice, 2 pts. Tequilla (preferrable Patron Silver, Kirkland Silver Tequilla from Costco is a good substitute), 1 pt. Triple Sec. You may need a little sweetener (simple sugar syrup) but, as each lime is different, you have to taste to determine how much. Shake with ice and drain into cocktail glass, with or without salted rim as you choose.

Q7. Is the presentation of the drink important? i.e. ceremony, type of glass, setting.

Cocktail glass to preserve the chill is important. Drinking with several friends is best as you can make a big batch and only have to determine the sweetening once!

Q8. Is there a Summer’s day drink that you feel is underrated? If so, why?

Gimlets (gin or vodka) are a good choice. Make with Roses Lime Juice, not fresh juice.

Q9. Where can people find out more about you? i.e. shop address, Twitter username, website url @walruswinks
