1tbls Dijon mustard
3 dashes Worcestershire
3 dashes tobasco
Salt to taste
Good amount of fresh pepper
2 Lemons squeezed
½ cup olive oil
**Food process together

Bob’s famous margarita (makes 1 margarita) – 1 ½ shot of silver Patron tequila, ¾ shot Cointreau, 2 limes juiced, quick squeeze of fresh lemon juice.  Shake and pour over a salt rimmed glass filled to the top of ice.  *Occasionally Bob adds a quick splash of soda water  on top before serving.  Best margarita ever – just ask anyone that has had one 🙂
