Margaritas (on the rocks)


Tart but sweet, refreshing, and oh yeah, it has tequila. There is a reason that margaritas are up there for all time favorite drinks. Margaritas, when done right, always hit the spot! And I like a quality margarita. I do not enjoy one that is weighed down with a lot of sweet and sour mix. I like lime, agave, orange juice and the flavor of the tequila. And just like my other Cinco de Mayo recipes, this is meant to be a crowd pleaser; both in flavor and in quantity. This will make a large pitcher of margaritas that everyone can enjoy. But since I am kind, I will also break down making a batch that serves 3-4 margaritas for you at the bottom of this post. You know, just in case your not serving or drinking for 10+. :) Um you're welcome.

Ingredients/Instructions (large batch):

4 cups tequila, I prefer silver

3 cups lime juice

1 cup triple sec, Gran Marnier or Cointreau (plus more for floating if you're going with Gran Marnier or Cointreau)

1 cup carbonated water (I know it sounds weird, but like a little bit fo fizz.)

1/2 cup agave nectar

3/4 cup orange juice

1 lime

salt

sugar (colored or plain, optional)

Ingredients/Instructions (small batch):

If you are looking to make a smaller batch, say 3-4 margaritas, use this quanitity of ingredients, and follow the same instructions (below)
