Margarita On The Rocks

Rated as 4.71 out of 5 Stars

"A successful and upscale Mexican cantina nearby makes the best margaritas I've ever tasted. They look, smell, and taste 'purer' than any others I've had. I always assumed they were using all top-shelf ingredients, until I found out their secret. . . lemon-lime soda! Now I'm able to re-create them at home."

  1. Rim 2 margarita glasses with salt if desired, and fill with ice. Pour the tequila, sweetened lime juice, triple sec, and lemon-lime soda into a shaker filled with ice, hold your hand firmly over over the top of the shaker so the top doesn't pop off from the carbonated soda, and shake vigorously. Pour into prepared margarita glasses, and serve.

Loved this drink! Used Cointreau instead of Triiple Sec and Sprite Zero for the lemon-lime soda. Did not rim the glasses with salt. Will definitely be making it again. Thanks for sharing you...

I was so excited to try this. I was terribly disappointed. Not what I was looking for in a delicious margarita on the rocks

This was awesome! I like drinking margaritas when I'm out to eat, but they're never as good at home-until now! Will keep this recipe forever. Thank you!!!!!

Excellent margarita and so easy to make! We were looking for a Margarita that contained actual lime juice and this one definately fit the bill!! Can't wait to make it again!

great, even with sprite zero. thanks for this one.

I actually multiplied this recipe to make 16 servings and pre-made it in a giant pitcher for a football party, then just poured it into ice filled glasses. I used Diet 7-Up and frozen limeade ...
