Finally an AUTHENTIC margarita recipe. If you think margarita mix or frozen limeade tequila is yummy or you like "blended" margaritas this might be more than you bargained for. If you like margaritas the way God intended them (on the rocks with salt made from scratch) you can't do better than this. Using fresh limes means you might taste some differences from batch to batch. Too sour? Add a dash more triple sec. If you don't have any Rose's Lime Juice you can just skip the "sweetened lime juice" part. I often make them with just 5 parts tequila 4 parts triple sec and 3 parts FRESH lime juice and they are fine. Just keep in mind this is a serious cocktail for people with grownup palates.
I'm a big fan of fresh lime juice margaritas (I despise sour mix!!) but these were a little too strong and too tart for me. I added some sugar and that helped out a lot. VERY strong as written but on the plus side they were good for sipping as they still had kick even as the ice melted and they watered down.
If you're lookin' for "Knock You On Your Tail" Margaritas - Here ya go!! We used silver Petron (TALK ABOUT SMOOTH TEQUILA!). Which I would recommend but don't be heavy handed - take the time to measure out the ounces. (I made the foolish mistake of letting the husband prepare the second round...)
These were a big hit!!! I made jugs of them and used Raspberry Cordial instead of sweetened lime juice to make Pink Margaritas. Also made them in a blender with ice so I could make a larger amount in one go. Thanks for the fab recipe!
I made this recipe for cinco de mayo and they were a hit. They taste just like the margaritas served in authentic mexican restaurants. I didn't have time to squeeze fresh lime juice so I bought a bottle of the pre squeezed and they were still excellent. This recipe is going into my family recipe book!
