This recipe makes four (large) or more (smaller) margaritas.  It is absolutely important to use fresh juice if you can in any way get ahold of it (though obviously it can be squeezed beforehand). Also, I usually chill the Tequila and Cointreau as well, so I don’t have to do much with it once it’s mixed.

You need:

  • Juice of six limes (not key limes)
  • Juice of one orange
  • 1c. Tequila (8oz)
  • 1/2c. Cointreau (4oz)
  • 1/4c simple syrup – optional

The juice should total between 3/4 and 1c of fresh juice.  Depending on how sweet the limes/orange is, you may need the simple syrup.  Otherwise, mix all ingredients, and serve on the rocks in a salted-rim glass.

    I know it’s not traditional, but could I have mine w/o the salt?

    Absolutely. Several of my family members prefer them that way. (I, however, must have salt!)
