Perfect Margaritas

My favorite warm weather drink is always a margarita, preferably shared with friends and served by the pitcher.  I have devoted a good portion of my post-wedding time to perfecting my recipe.  I think I've finally gotten it down (just in time for fall to come and bring in the whiskey drinks!).  But here it is...mix one up and celebrate a summer well-spent! 

This recipe makes 4 generous servings.  A few notes, we have been using Cimarron Blanco tequila, which is a great mid-range tequila for margarita making.  For the orange juice, I usually squeeze it up fresh, but if you are feeling lazy, whatever you have in the fridge is fine.  Use the best salt you have - I like sea salt flakes.  You could mix the salt with grated lime rind to make it extra fancy!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1 1/2 cup tequila
  • 8 tsp agave
  • 2 tbsp Cointreau
  • 2 tbsp orange juice
  • good quality salt
  • lime slices to garnish

Mix all ingredients together in a pitcher and stir until just combined.  Prepare glasses by rubbing lime juice around the rim, then dip the rim of each glass on to a plate of salt.  Fill the glasses with ice and garnish with a lime slice.  Pour margaritas and enjoy!
