It's no secret margaritas are my drink of choice. I don't care what I'm eating, what season it is...I will always choose a margarita over any other drink.
We always want to make margs when we grill out, but my problem is, I hate margarita mix....the kind that you buy in a huge bottle and just add tequila. It tastes like thick syrup and doesn't compare to the fresh margaritas I get at restaurants (I think Chili's still has my favorite one!) So my goal for this weekend was to find the perfect margarita recipe...and I think I found it!
I found several recipes online that sounded good, tried them out, made some changes, and in my opinion, perfected it. Here's my perfect margarita:
-2 oz tequila
-1 oz triple sec
-2 oz lime juice
-4 tsp of sugar
-splash of orange juice
(alter amounts depending on how strong/sweet you like it)
1. Microwave the lime juice for 30 seconds then stir in sugar until completely dissolved.
2. Combine ice cubes, lime juice, tequila, triple sec, and OJ in a shaker and shake!
3. Dip rim of glass in lime juice, then in salt.
4. Pour, garnish, and enjoy!
*If you prefer frozen margs, just add all ingredients plus some ice cubes and blend*
