Default Your best margarita recipe........

........for margs on the rocks.
I am looking for something I can mix up and have handy and just add the tequila as necessary.
We'll be down at Port A next weekend.

I prefer original (lime). Not strawberry or mango or whatever.

Post whatever you use, no matter how simple or how compex.

Thanks

The original recipe from mexico for real ones:

One part mexican(key) lime juice
One part Cointreau
Three parts tequila

as the story goes....when it was introduced in the US...some accounts say LA and others say El Paso....it was reduced to one part tequila. I love the original ones....careful...mighty potent.

Cointreau

Quote:
Cointreau has also become very popular in premium Margaritas, often known as "Gold Margaritas". Cointreau replaces the Triple sec in the standard Margarita recipe and adds a more intense orange flavour


Interesting. Thanks

1/4 cup of powdered sugar? Doesn't sound like enough liquid to even make a good paste! It does sound sweet, though.

had a lot of success in the past using "Freshies" but I have not seen it on the shelf lately at my local grub store

Combine 1.5 oz. Anejo Tequilla, .5 oz. Grand Marnier(R), and 4 oz. Freshies Fresh Lime Margarita Mix in a pint glass over ice. Shake for 15 seconds (or blend in blender). Pour into a salted margarita glass and garnish with a wedge of fresh lime. Enjoy!



If you are in touch with your feminine side (BOB, please don't try this) the mango mix they make is pretty good too (a bit sweet for my tastes)

I know you guys make your own blend, but if you want hassle free rita the Jose Cuervo premix margarita is not bad.

Leggy,

You drank that at my house one night.

I've drank many a bottle of that stuff. You're right, it's easy and still beats the margaritas they serve up at most Mexican restaurants. Speaking of restaurant margaritas, I would love to have the on the rocks margarita recipe they use at L. Trevino's in Rockwall. I have yet to have a better margarita. I've asked for the recipe many times, but they will not talk.

Was about to crack open a tsingtao (favorite Kill Bill brew)

but now you have done it, I have a full blown urge to go score some Patron.

Loves me some corralejo, porfidio, cazadores and chinaco but I always circle back to Patron... just seems to be the one that consistently gets me where I want to be both for taste and vibe.

Mmmmm corralejo.... so hard to narrow it down

Frozen recipe - made in blender (if you can take one on trip) Fast and easy

6 oz can Frozen Limeade
(can for measuring)
1 full can gold tequila
1/3 can Cointreau
1/3 can Grand Marnier
Fill blender with ice and run till smooth, not icy

Also for all those that go to Mexico, load up on bottles of CONTROY on your return as it is as good as Cointreau, but runs $6 to $7 per bottle.

Y'all are killing me with the margarita thread and this thread. When I went and spent my liquor budget Saturday I had to pick between stocking back up on Patron or adding some Rum to the cabinet. I still had a little Patron Silver left so I pick up some Capt. Morgans.... now I have the urge to go get some more Patron.... bad influences

Just had one of these. Very tart and STRONG.

I think the problem was that I squeezed the rind of the lime along with the meat.
I only made a small batch so no big deal.

I cut the mix with a little ginger ale (no lemon lime soda in the hizzy) and adeed a dash of Rose's.

Made it drinkable but not superlative. I'll change my lime squeezing technique.

I used the Sauza reposado. (green label)
