Margaritas from scratch

This is a well balanced drink; not too sweet and not too tart. And so simple to make! I stopped buying mixers since I keep lime juice in the fridge anyway!

This recipe is for one drink, but it is so easy to multiply. Equal amounts of tequila, lime juice and simple syrup, plus 2/3 of the same amount of triple sec.

You can add as much ice as you like. I like mine cold, but not frozen or on the rocks, so I blend the ice.
