This beats any pre-made margarita mix you can find. I prefer mine straight-up, but you can add salt to the rim if you like.

This recipe made a large pitcher of margaritas but they were too tart to drink. I had added about 1/4 cup of sugar already but it was still way too tart. I made a simple syrup with about a cup of sugar added that to the finished pitcher and that made this recipe very tasty. There is nothing better than margaritas made with fresh squeezed lime juice.

Skipped the "extra sugar" recommendations and went with the recipe as is. Triple Sec left it plenty sweet for our taste. Served over the ice instead of using cocktail shaker which kept it cold for sipping on the deck. Read More

This is not a blended margarita. It's just a margarita with ice. Read More
