#FridayCocktail – the Margarita
Put away your winter whites and pull out those linen pants, sundresses and bermudas. Here in Canada, the last Monday before, or on, May 24th is a holiday AND the unofficial start of summer. Celebrate with this classic summer cocktail – the Margarita.

½ ounce orange liqueur (Cointreau, Triple Sec)
