Unaged whiskey makes a damn fine margarita and is a great alternative to tequila. Caution: same effect, though.
Nelson's White Whiskey Margarita
3 ounces Nelson's Tennessee White Whiskey
2 ounces Cointreau
2 ounces of fresh lime juice
Coarse salt for rimming the glasses
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine all of the ingredients and shake until nice and cold. Run the flesh of a lime wedge along the rim of the glass and dip the moistened rim into coarse salt. Fill the glasses with ice and strain the shaker into each equally. Serves 2.
