The Classic Margarita ~ Todd Fiscus, Dallas and Houston, Texas

When it comes to summer cocktails, I choose the mixology recipe from Texas-based event planner Todd Fiscus of Todd Events. And what’s more refreshing than an icy cold margarita? A presentation in a colorful hand painted margarita glass!

Classic Margarita
1 1/2 oz. tequila (100% agave a must)
1 1/2 oz. Cointreau
1 to 1 1/4 oz. lime juice
Salt for the rim of the glass
Shake all the ingredients with cracked ice in a cocktail shaker until the exterior frosts. Strain into a glass over ice.

The other day, I received the following email that included a picture attached>

“Hello: I am interested in reproducing this tile (or something very similar, same words, similar style...I like the "face" design) for a friend of mine...the one you see here is broken. The one pictured here is about 6” x 6”. I'm not in any hurry. Is this possible, and if so, what would the cost be? Thanks!”

We never know how high we are
Till we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan,
Our statures touch the skies
