This is a basic margarita recipe. You can add your favorite fresh fruits to flavor it. Fresh strawberry or mango are good choices. For a little something different, try granulated sugar rims on the glasses instead of margarita salt.

This basic recipe is great! I have a commercial blender so I increased the tequila to 1 cup & the triple sec to about 1/3cup. I also reduced the limeade a bit so that 2 12oz cans made 3 batches. I used fresh cut limes to wet the rim of the glasses before salting and served them with the lime wedge on the edge of the glass. These were a great hit at 2 office functions...everyone asked for my recipe! Read More

This recipe has potential but the ratios are really messed up. Twelve ounces of limeade concentrate is way too much. It was so tart! I tried to add some corn syrup to correct it and ended up using about a cup of it but it was still so sour that it was undrinkable. I choked down a glass of it then had a stomachache. This was a shameful waste of tequilla and triple sec. Read More

Basic margarita is right. Probably got this off a bottle of Cuervo. Good for those that have no idea what a margarita should taste like. Read More

This truly is a basic margarita but boy is it good! It's very lime-y but that's certainly not a bad thing! Add a little less - or a little more! - to taste. We enjoyed this recipe at a staff function - at work I know! It was a big hit and everyone gave the bartenders tons of compliments. Chips and salsa are the perfect starter with this of course!

Everyone at the party loved it!! I've even been asked for the recipe numerous times and have been told to laminate it! Now everytime I go to the store I pick up a couple cans of limeades for those guest who happen to stop by and question if we are making margaritas again tonight. Read More

I too enjoyed these frothy delights at a work function and let me tell you the second half of the day went by in a jiffy! A little lime-heavy but easily altered to suit the drinker's tastes. A basic margarita recipe should be part of everyone's beverage-making repetoire! Read More
