Default Margaritas!

Looking for some new recipes to try! I searched and shocked there are only a few on the TBH.

I know, tequila, lime, and enjoy. But not every margarita is considered equal!

let's hear some favorite recipes.

There are two I like that come from Tim Love's Lonesome Dove restaurants: the Jalapeño-Cucumber Margarita and the Mango Chamoy Rocks Margarita.

Jalapeño-Cucumber Margarita
INGREDIENTS
8 1⁄8 inches slices jalapeños
8 1⁄8 inches slices cucumbers
1⁄4 cup sugar
8 ounces Cointreau liqueur or 8 ounces orange juice
10 ounces milagro silver tequila
2 limes, juice of
4 lime wedges
1 large ice cube
kosher salt

Using a mortar and pestle, grind 4 slices jalepeno, 4 slices cucumber into 1/4 cup sugar. Pour mixture into a shaker. Add tequila, Cointreau and lime juice. Fill shaker with ice and shake heavily. Rub rim of 4 highball glasses with lime wedges and coat with salt. Fill with ice. Give the shaker one more shake and strain contents into each glass. Garnish with jalapeno and cucumber slices.

Still working on perfecting the Mango Chamoy Marg. Close, real close.

I have found a tequila that has cucumber and jalapeño flavoring already. It is good. No doubt fresh is much better. I love the combination you mentioned.

1 cup water, 1 cup sugar in a sauce pan, stir over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Chop up 3 jalepanos seeds and all and add to the sauce pan, simmer on low for 15 mins. Strain off the jalepanos and let cool.

In a shaker, add a few tablespoons of the jalepano syrup, 1/2 cup fresh lime juice, 1/3 cup grand marnier, 1 cup of decent tequila, and full with ice. Shake until most of the ice is melted and your hand is frozen. This melting of the ice is important to the flavor. Pour over fresh ice. Store the jalepano syrup in the fridge for next time.

Adjust measurements of shaker ingredients to taste.

My recipe is similar to this, and I literally can't make enough when we have friends over. Not to mention the best part: the only morning side effect from drinking too many is dry mouth from all the lime juice...No hangover, no problem!

I prefer blanco tequila for my margaritas, so here goes. A "part" can be whatever measurement you want...an ounce, a cup, a gallon:

1. 1 part blanco tequila (I prefer Milagro, Don Julio or Dos Armadillos. Ratchet up to Clase Azul for the smoothest of the smooth)
2. Slightly less than 1 part Cointreau*
3. Same amount of fresh-squeezed lime juice as Cointreau...I prefer limes that get to a yellowish color, as that lessens the need for agave for those who think normal limes are too tart.**
4. 1/4 part fresh-squeezed orange juice

*substitute Grand Marnier for a slightly less sweet flavor, or do 1/2 Cointreau and 1/2 Grand Marnier
**optional 1/4 squeeze of agave nectar if you are using greener, more tart limes
***smooth-skinned limes yield more juice than the bumpy skin limes

Pour over lots of large ice into shaker, and shake extremely well (ie, 40+ shakeweight shakes for you exercise buffs!). Serve up or serve over ice cubes. If you want to get really fancy, serve over ice spheres.

Also, I will occasionally sub reposado or even anejo (heaven forbid!) instead of blanco tequila for a different flavor.

Thank me later!

Grapefruit Margaritas:

Same recipe as above, with the following tweaks:
1. 1 part of fresh grapefruit juice
2. lower the fresh lime juice component to 1/2 part, instead of being an equal part to the Cointreau part
3. *Optional - after pouring shaker contents into the glass, add a little Topo Chico or Club Soda to taste

Don't laugh till you try it...

I don't have exact measurements like the rest of y'all refined people...

Muddle a Serrano pepper then mix in as much tequila as you like and Cucumber GATORAIDE and shake over ice and pour in a glass rimmed with tajin (or rim the glass with the Serrano and salt).

I really like to add a little watermelon and lime juice to the rum, and ice there too. It turns out unusual, but delicious! I also really like to make aperol with white wine and apple juice

Want to make the evening a little more interesting swap out the tequila for ever clear! I usually add a handful of sugar to the blender when I do that. Seen some people get downright silly drinking those.

Saw this thread for the first time about 40 minutes ago...went to Kroger, got the necessary supplies. It’s now 10:47 and I just polished the entire batch, prolly should not have done that...cuz don’t really drink.

It was ok...and then I realized, forgot the kosher salt. Pretty awesome, goes down smooth. Super easy to drink, tastes healthy for some reason. Definitely gonna make these for my wife and her friends.

It was ok...and then I realized, forgot the kosher salt. Pretty awesome, goes down smooth. Super easy to drink, tastes healthy for some reason. Definitely gonna make these for my wife and her friends.
Out of curiosity, did you substitute orange juice for the Cointreau?

Egg whites make it frothy.
You can crack an egg and get the egg white, or buy egg whites in a container.

I've always gone simple with the 3-2-1 recipe
3 parts tequila (Herradura Silver is my choice for margaritas)
2 parts orange liqueur (Cointreau for me)
1 part fresh squeezed lime juice

Here's another one for y'all to try. Might be my new favorite.

Mexican Martini

3 oz Anejo Tequila
1 1/2 oz Cointreau
1 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz green olive brine from the jar
Splash of orange juice
lime wedges and olives

3-2-1
3 oz Teq
2 oz Triple Sec
Juice of 1 lime

A little club soda and Agave Nectar if lime happens to be too tart. Never is for me.
