This is what was actually in the silver cocktail jug at Lucy’s 40th birthday bash in the ‘Wolds. It’s really easy to make in large quantities, and if it lacks a little flair and finesse, well, no-one seemed to be complaining much.
You will need:
• 2 parts tequila, as good as you can afford
• 2 parts 7 up or sprite
• 1 part Cointreau or triple sec
• 1 part freshly squeezed lime juice
• Salt to taste
Mix together, strain through ice and serve.
