After living in Austin Texas for 10 years, my husband and I perfected the perfect margarita. The secret to success is fresh fruit juice only and it doesn't use any pre-made mixes! Don't skimp and try buying juice. Squeeze it yourself or you won't get the best taste! If you are a real olive lover, add pimento stuffed olives and call it a 'Mexican martini'...delicious! and you won't confuse yours with anyone else's if you add 3 olives on a stirrer. :)

Cook's Note

When serving a group, I will make a mixer of the fruit juices using 10 limes, 5 oranges, and 5 lemons. Just keep the juice chilled in a pitcher, and pour it into the tequila to taste depending on how strong you like it.
