REAL Margaritas


If you like your margaritas with salt, rub the outside rim of your serving glass with a cut lime and dip glass lightly into a plate of Kosher salt.

Combine the lime juice, lemon juice, Triple sec, and ice in a blender and puree until completely blended. Add the tequila and puree for 2 seconds more. Serve over ice.

For Cool Breezes:
If you prefer frozen margaritas, halve each of the ingredients, double the ice, and blend into two batches. Serve with a lime wheel or wedge.

For Rocky Crowds:
If you prefer to drink it on the rocks like Nicole does with friends, add all ingredients except ice into a pitcher, duplicating the recipe over and over until your pitcher is full. When ready to serve, pour margaritas over ice in a cocktail shaker, shake vigorously, and strain off into a prepared glass with more ice. Garnish with lime wheel.

Nutritional Information: Good source of potassium, vitamin C, and fun!

You can also substitute the Triple sec for Grand Marnier if you prefer Texas margaritas.

I recommend using an Agave silver tequila - like "1800" and purchase your limes in bulk - like from Costco in 5# bags.
