I stole these pictures from the Frenchman.

While Ariana cooked up a delicious storm in the kitchen of her parents' house on Fire Island last weekend, Vince and I sat outside for half an hour, sipping these.

Then we moved back in to deal with the wreckage that follows in that tornado-cook's culinary wake.

There is only one way to make good Margaritas, and that is with good ingredients. I did not measure. But I have a dead eye on the spot. Decent Tequila, Cointreau, fresh lime juice, much ice; shake like the blazes, a whisper of salt on the rim, pour.

One Margarita:

1 part Cointreau
2 parts lime juice
4 parts good Tequila

Shake up with a ton of ice.

Happy weekend, world.

This evening we are off to Frank's Beach Farm for a barbecue. Now I must go to find some burrata for his fresh-from-the-vine tomatoes...
