We are happy to have come across these bloggers who visited Austin during Batfest. They seem to know their stuff about margaritas, and we are happy to have impressed them with ours at Guero’s! Here’s an exerpt:
“As an aside, here’s a word about margaritas: they’re not green. They don’t look like slush puppies, and aren’t as sweet as candy. They’re not made with bar mix of any kind. If someone makes you a margarita with any of the features named above, by all means drink it, but don’t think it’s a margarita. Margaritas have three ingredients: good tequila, an orange liqueur, like cointreau or triple sec and fresh-squeezed lime juice, shaken and poured over ice in a small glass. If you absolutely must, salt the rim. That’s it, that’s all. Anything else is like buying Spam at the grocery store and serving it for Easter. Guero’s margaritas are done very right, indeed. A small glass of refreshing perfection”
They also seemed infatuated with our “BEST EVER” quesadillas.
“Here, we snacked on some guacamole and what turned out to be the BEST EVER quesadilla. Soft flour tortillas with chorizo, tomato and onion with good jack cheese, accompanied by sour cream, more guacamole and jalapeno slices. We imagine that they toasted the tortillas on a flatop or in a pan to brown them a little and then steamed them until the cheese melted. As a result we didn’t get any hard and dried out tortillas, just soft and pillowy, oozing with filling.
