    Default Is a Margarita a manly drink?

    Based on Scott's thread....

    Unfortunately up here, ordering a "Margarita" will get you well tequila and sour mix along with a raised eyebrow. A "Top Shelf Margarita" means using 1800, Cointreau and sour mix. In the hot summer months, there's not much better than a Margarita made right. In the span of one week last year I asked three bartenders for a margarita with no sour mix. They all asked if I was sure and said it would be disgusting. The thing is, it's am IBA registered drink. They should all know how to make it...

    Back to the point, it seems in Texas anyone can order a margarita (mixed right) with no problem. In the North, it's looked at like a fru-fru drink (becasue of all the sugar in the sour mix, I assume). What do you think.
    Oh no.....


    Oh Yeah!

    Oh yeah, for Scott... of course I have my "sipping" tequilas, and don't use the $50 a bottle tequila for a margarita. I also don't use Cuervo or El Toro either.
    Oh no.....


    Oh Yeah!

    Well, tequila will turn you into an idiot & stupidity knows no bounds or genders.....so, I would say it's an either/or type of drink.

    Margarita on the rocks = manly
    Frozen Margarita when not on a cruise = girly

    Drink what you want. I think there are those who say if you don't drink beer you aren't manly.

    Let the people with issues own their issues. It seems to be their own insecurity, imo.

    Now, if you have to slip into a skirt to drink a margarita, ok there may be manly issues there.

    Haha this was supposed to be a bit tongue-in-cheek, but I think the title maybe should read "Is a Margarita a girly drink". . Regardless, I'll still enjoy them every once in a while. As I mentioned above, you can't get a good one around here anyway so they're all homebrew to begin with.

    Always rocks, never frozen, no salt!
    Oh no.....

    Ahem. There is one drink that is undeniably "manly". Over to our reporter, Marc Almond, for the in-depth story.

    A properly made margarita is just tequila, cointreau and lime right? Make it that way and it's probably going to be about 35% alcohol, not very sweet and not a drink that many drinkers of frozen fruity margaritas would like.

    ALL Tequila drinks are manly drinks. Ask Sammy Hagar, he's a manly man.

    I like the taste of margaritas, but just don't want all that sugar and salt, so I'm good with a beer and a 2 shots.

    Precisely! 1 oz each of tequila, triple sec and FRESH lime juice. Shaken and served in a cocktail glass - aka no ice. Garnish with lime. Triple sec is pretty danged sweet, but should be balanced by the acidity of the lime and both will tame and enhance the tequila slightly.

    And 35% alcohol is nothing to laugh at... that's just 10 proof points (5%) off "straight from the bottle."

    My favorite margarita is at a trendy Mexican place downtown... they have a special house blended lime/triple sec mixture that makes an *amazing* margarita. They send the servers out with pitchers and shaker tins, shake them right at your table.

    When I was bartending, a patron asked one of our girls for a margarita and was informed we couldn't make them - we didn't have any margarita mix.

    Don't get me started on cheap sour mix. And don't dare mention powdered margarita mix in my presence.

    Well I was close, I thought it was 2 oz Tequila, 1 oz Cointreau and 1 oz lime juice. I've made that a few times, its pretty good.
