Squeezed limes pair with a touch of fresh orange juice to accentuate the lime and tone down the acidity. Shake until ice cold and voila, served icy on the rocks, it bring me back to Mexico every time!
- Lime Juice - Orange Juice - Tequila - Orange Liqueur - Lime - Kosher Salt
Run a lime wedge around the rim of 2 large glasses then dip rims into the saucer of salt then fill glasses with ice.
In an ice filled cocktail shaker, add juices, tequila and orange liqueur and shake until icy cold and well mixed. Pour into ice filled glasses and garnish with another lime wedge. Salud!
NOTES A cold cocktail is best served very cold so use plenty of ice when mixing your drink and then pour it into a glass filled with fresh ice for the best results.
NOTES Using good tequila and fresh squeezed juices make this classic margarita sing but beware, these are delicious and at 3 oz of alcohol per drink, one per person is all you need.
MAKE AHEAD AND STORAGE You can pre mix homemade Margaritas without the ice and store in your refrigerator up to 2 days ahead for optimum flavor and freshness.
