Equipment

Ingredients

Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar

Margarita

  • ½ cup frozen fruit OR 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
  • ¼ cup simple syrup recipe above
  • 3 oz tequila
  • 1 oz orange liqueur
  • 1 cup ice
  • lime wedges
  • coarse sugar/salt

Instructions

Simple Syrup

  • Heat: Add the water and sugar to a small pot, heat over medium heat. Whisk while cooking. Once sugar is completely dissolved and mixture is clear, remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.

Margaritas

  • Blend: Add the frozen fruit of choice, or fresh lime juice, simple syrup, tequila, orange liqueur and ice to a blender (start with less ice than you think, too much ice will make the drink too thick). Blend for about 1 minute until completely mixed and no large chunks remain.
  • Adjust: Taste and add more ice or sweetener as needed.
  • Serve: Run a lime wedge around the rim of the glasses. Dip into sugar or salt. Pour margarita into glass, serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • Simple Syrup: can sub with agave syrup if desired as a sweetener. 
  • This simple syrup recipe will make enough for 6-8 margaritas, leftovers can be stored in a sealed container at room temperature for 3-5 days. 
  • Tequila: use a 100% Agave Tequila. Either a blanco or a reposada will work well in this recipe.
  • Orange Liqueur: Triple Sec is a common option, you could also use Cointreau.
  • Alcohol amounts: This recipe includes slightly more than one shot per drink. Amounts of alcohol can be adjusted according to preference. 
  • Large Batches: Keep the ratios the same, and prepare a larger batch of margaritas at one time.
