Gerry's Margarita

Rated as 4.75 out of 5 Stars

"The perfect margarita made with all fresh ingredients! I love margaritas. Let me rephrase that, I love good margaritas. This recipe took me about 6 months to perfect, and 5 years to share. I promise once you taste the freshness and balance of this recipe, you'll not only impress yourself, but your friends too. This recipe is consistent, and will come out the same exact way every time. Here are some dos and don'ts to make sure it comes out my way, Gerry's way. Use 2 heaping tablespoons white sugar. The most common mistake is people don't use enough white sugar because they think its too much. The drink will be tart. Don't worry most of the sugar stays in the shaker. Let the drink rest after shaking. That little bit of water from the ice melting helps the balance."

OK, I'm giving two stars for the ingredients EXCEPT for the tequila choice. Jose Cuervo Gold?? Really? Invest in something just a tiny bit more expensive and get 100% agave tequila. Jose Cue...

Fantastic margarita! I was initially put off by the amount of sugar but you don't pour all of it. It's perfectly balanced so that the right amount gets poured and the excess gets left at the bot...

This recipe is amazing!! So simple and fresh and delicious! I didn't have any orange liquor, so I had to leave that out. Didn't miss it at all!

I love a good margarita and this is the best I have ever made. Used recipe just as written. Perfection!

Perfect cocktail for our Cinco de Mayo dinner! Made exactly as written with a little less tequila . Nothing but fresh ingredients. So much better than the mix in a bottle!
