Outrageous Outboard Margarita Maker

Everybody knows margaritas and boating go together like hand-in-glove; it's probably #1 on the list of "Boat Drinks." A couple of days ago, Al Roker and Matt Lauer were in colorful Key West for the Today Show, and during one segment, Al was joined by Howard Livingston & The Mile Marker 24 Band, who gave him a chance to try out a piece of machinery any boat lover would appreciate -- a giant Margarita maker constructed from an old, modified Johnson outboard motor.

Though Hulu pulled the video of that segment, we found another YouTube video that shows the band demonstrating their toy onstage. Take a look and see what you think!



Of course, this post wouldn't be complete if we didn't include at least one margarita recipe. There are hundreds of different styles of margarita out there, but we thought we'd settle on a simple classic that anyone can make: Jimmy Buffet's Perfect Margarita Recipe (courtesy of Margarita Texas)

Ingredients:
Crushed ice
3 wedges lime
2 ounces gold tequila (Cuervo 1800)
1/2 ounce tequila (Cuervo white)
1 1/4 ounces Rose's Lime Juice
1 splash orange CuraƧao (Bols)

Directions:
Put all ingredients except the 3 lime wedges into a shaker. Squeeze 2 of the lime wedges into the shaker. SHAKE WELL! Rim outside of glass only with lime. Salt only the outside of the glass. Add fresh crushed ice to glass. Strain mixture over ice. Squeeze remaining lime wedge in glass. And ENJOY!
