If you’re not into margaritas made with pre-made “margarita mix–just add tequila!” then this is the recipe for you. I’ve never been into any recipe for margaritas that contain the word “mixer” or even “simple syrup” because I like my margaritas to be tart, limey, and traditionally made with tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. And that’s it! I totally understand that this recipe will not be for everyone, but those who like it puckery tart, this one’s for you!
Ingredients for 2 margaritas:
Limes, fresh squeezed, enough juice to make 3/4 cup
4.5 oz silver tequila
1.5 oz triple sec
agave nectar, to taste
Pour salt into a saucer, and rub cut lime around the rims of two glasses. Place upside down in the salt to stick. Combine tequila, lime juice, and triple sec with ice cubes into a shaker and shake vigorously. Pour into the two glasses (over ice if desired) and stir in agave nectar to taste.
