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.

Instructions Checklist
  • 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 your recipe. Read More

Absolutely phenomenal. All you could ever want from a margarita recipe and then some. My husband just returned from a trip to Mexico, and I had to find a recipe that was worthy to use with the bottle of Blanco Patron he brought back. This most definitely fit the bill. Thanks!! Read More

This is the best Margarita recipe I have found yet on the Internet and I have tried out and experimented with dozens. I would call this the White Margarita had I named it. My wife thinks of it as a Dry Margarita. Either way we love it and hardly a weekend goes by that we don't whip up a batch. Read More

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 concentrate which I mixed with 4 cans of water before using for the margaritas. It's very refreshing and light and sure packs a punch! It makes a strong drink but that's how I like it! I live in Arizona so I went to the backyard and pulled limes off my tree and squeezed a fresh lime into each glass YUM! Read More
