Why make margaritas from scratch? Because fresh ingredients taste so much better. If you go to the trouble of selecting a premium tequila and orange liqueur, you don’t want to use a mediocre mixer with an after taste. Instead make it right from the beginning and enjoy it.

Even with my limited but awesome bartending skills, I can make a great margarita that my toughest customer (the husband) will order repeatedly. Here are two margarita recipes to try.

 


Strawberry Lemonade Margarita Recipe

  • 2 cups strawberry lemonade (I used Simply Lemonade With Strawberry)
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 1 cup Cointreau
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • lime slices for garnish
  • salt for glass rim (optional)

To make a batch, combine all ingredients in a pitcher. Pour over ice. Serves 4-6. Garnish each with a slice of lime.

 

Classic Margarita Recipe

  • 2 oz. tequila
  • 1 oz. Cointreau
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • salt for glass rim (optional)

By the glass. Combine all ingredients with ice in a shaker.

Shake vigorously and pour over fresh ice, adding a slice of lime.

Are you a salt or no salt kind of person? The easiest way to salt the rim of a glass is to take a wedge of lime and run it around the rim. Invert the glass into a shallow bowl or saucer of salt. The salt will then stick to the lime juice.

In an attempt to be somewhat healthier, I’m a no salt kind of person. It almost sounds scandalous to admit, but I figure I’m getting enough salt in my daily diet and don’t need to add more to enjoy a good margarita.

Recipe note: Selecting an orange liqueur is completely up to you. Cointreau has always been my favorite but you can’t go wrong with Grand Marnier or Triple Sec which is commonly used.
