Quick post – I made margaritas from scratch. They were tart and wonderful. I squeezed fresh lime juice, added tequila and triple sec. I found a citrus juicer on sale at Bed, Bath, and Beyond yesterday. I have enough lime juice to make more!!!!! Yummy! I got the inspiration from a party I went to this past spring. We had margaritas made from scratch and we fell in love with them.
1 ½ oz Tequila
½ oz Triple Sec
1 oz lime juice
Rub rim on cocktail glass with lime juice, dip rim in salt. Shake all ingredients with ice, strain into the salt-rimmed glass, and serve.
I recommend this. Try it the next time you want to have a simple fresh margarita! If the limes are tart, you might have to add a little more triple sec to smooth it out. Have fun!!
