margaritas my way

This is a slightly modified verion of the recipe my boss gave me years ago. I keep a batch in the frig at all times, and throw some into the blender with ice whenever you're ready. I have to restrict my salt, so I learned to enjoy without rimming the glass. No one seems to mind the absence of salt.

Ingredients For margaritas my way

  • 12 oz
    can of frozen limeade, thawed
  • 12 oz
    orange liquer (triple sec is fine, but you can use more expensive liquers if you like)
  • 12 oz
    tequila (your choice, but i stick by my friend jose's cuervo gold)

How To Make margaritas my way

  • 1
    Pour thawed limeade into a suitably sized container. (Because I make it as a batch to store, I save a juice bottle for this.) Not all stores carry frozen limeade in the wintertime, so I have occasionally used frozen pink lemonade.
  • 2
    Using the empty limeade can to measure, add equal amounts of tequila and triple sec.
  • 3
    When you are ready to serve, pour over ice. Or make a nice slushy frozen margarita by mixing in a blender with ice. Salting the rim of your glass is optional. Sometimes I add fruit or juice -- mango nectar, pineapple, strawberries (!). With or without the addition of fruit, topping this off with just a little added tequila gives your margarita a nice kick.

    Enjoy! (And drink responsibly, don't overindulge because it tastes so good.)
