The official blog of

The Perfect Margarita

with 12 comments

If there is one thing I know, it’s people. I’m what you call a real people person. I’ve been searching for that something that brings people together and unites them in a universal passion. For a while I thought it was topless bars, but that seemed to exclude a lot of chicks, man. What I now know to be true, and ironically can still involve exposed breasts, is alcohol. People love to get drunk, (or at least try). That’s why tonight, while attending a welcome home party for my friend who just got out of jail for his fifth DUI offensive, I’ll be giving you the perfect margarita mix recipe via my laptop.


In a blender combine the following:


Hey Jill can you hand me that lime? Thanks.


1 part vermouth


Whoa, wrong bottle. Hey Jill can you hand me that tequila bottle over there and take this one? Wait, let me take a nip real quick. Wow, that’s kind of sweet, like wine.


1 part tequila, (one shot for me)


Cut a lime in half and squeeze… damn it! Jill can you get me another lime?


Cut a lemon in half and squeeze both ends it into the blender, making sure no seeds get in there.


Oh thanks, Jill. Cut a lime in half and follow the directions for the lemon.


Now I like to add two tablespoons of sugar and… What, why are you yelling at me? What do you mean that’s not sugar? Oh, really? That’s uh… gonna certainly change things.


Um… OK, let’s see…


1 part tequila, (one shot for me)


Add some ice


2 parts margarita mix


2 parts tequila, (one shot for me)


Hey, what’s up Rick? What’s going on man? Long time, huh? What ya been up to? No shit? That’s crazy! For realz? Right on. Yeah, for sure.


OK, let’s see…


1 part tequila (one shot for me)


1 part margarita mix


1 quick shot for me


This half empty beer here


1 part brown liquor with no label that smells like turpentine


1 part vermouth


1 part vodka


Three, no four olives


1 part tequila, (two shots for me)


Turn on your blender


OK, make sure the blender is plugged in…


Turn on your blender


DAMN IT! Make sure the lid is on your blender…


Lick the remaining concoction off of Jill’s face.


And there you have it, the perfect margarita!


Egg On,

  1. Hey Roost,
    It ain’t clear whether the blender splattered margarita on Jill’s face or do we have to splatter it ourselves to make it perfect. (I know you’ve got a mean streak).

    • pochp, I’m so happy to read from you again. I needed your unique and witty take on things. The answer is that you have to get it on Jill’s face without her knowing that you intended to get it on her face. Otherwise she won’t let you lick it off.

  2. Ah… hahaha!

    That’s fucking awesome. Brilliant post.

    The last instruction or two remind me of Ike’s recipes for “Tina Turnovers.” Only slightly less violent and humiliating.

  3. Your parties are awesome and your margaritas rock! I still don’t understand why I can’t sleep or eat for two days afterwards though.

    • Scott Oglesby, I’m glad you enjoy the parties and I have no idea why you can’t sleep. I end up sleeping for three days afterwards.

  4. This was a crackup. How do I get invited to the next party? Will you serve bottles of whiskey?

    • Claire Collins, I thought I saw you at the party. Weren’t you in the corner with Alpo and Lion T.? I’m told you’re not allowed to have bottles of whiskey… something about violence or making Tina Turnovers.

  5. Ohhh that’s why I can’t remember. Too many margaritas and Alpo and Lion T. have that effect on me.

    And apparently, now I have a drinking problem and according to Don Mills, a gambling problem as well. Someone may need to do an intervention soon.

    • Claire Collins, Oooo, dibs on reading my letter first! I love interventions!

      • You been to a few of those, huh RR? Which side of the intervention were you on?

        Claire Collins

        • Claire Collins, I attend an intervention at least once a week. They are always for me. It’s Farmer Brown and a couple of chikcs I know.
