BP's No Mix Margarita

I use the 80/20 rule ;).  Eat well 80% of the time, and give yourself 20% to splurge.  It's all about balance. I splurged tonight with this mix-free margarita!

Ingredients: (for 2)

Simple Syrup*
2 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
2 oz. Cointreau (orange liqueur)
2 oz. Premium Tequila (I used Cazadores)

Make ahead the Simple Syrup* 2 cups water, 1 cup sugar.  Cook over high heat until sugar is dissolved.  Remove from heat and refrigerate.

Mix lime juice, orange liqueur, and tequila-shake in drink shaker.  Pour over ice.  Add Simple Syrup to desired sweetness.
