from a bartender of 30 plus years; classic drink...always use the top of the line ingredients. Changing the ingredients changes the entire drink. THIS is a margarita! Read More

This was too tart for me. Try using silver tequila fresh lime juice Cointreau amaretto and splash of OJ to soften the tart. Read More

I'm a margarita junky and this recipe is the closest to my dream margarita! I use simple sugar instead of agave nectar and I lie the rim with lime salt. YUM! Thanks for the recipe Read More

Really strong for us we reduced the amount of tequila and they were much better. Served at my birthday party and everybody was enjoying them. I couldn't find the brands mentioned but did use some smooth silver and triple sec. Read More

Mixed exactly as shown using good Tequilla and bottled lime juice. EXCELLENT recipe! Perfect combination of ingredients. One of the best margaritas I have made. Ps- you can make sugar free simple syrup using Splenda or store brand “Splenda” for us Diabetics! ?? Read More

Excellent margarita. Nix the pre made mixes and make this with fresh lime juice instead. We used agave syrup which keeps the integrity of the drink but we prefer less sweet drinks and used 1/2 ounce of agave syrup. Perfection! Read More

Very strong so I used half the tequila. Use good tequila because this is a fresh and simple ingredient top notch margarita. I boiled the lime peels in the simple syrup which gave even more lime flavor without the tartness. Read More
