There will be water (both sparkling and still) for the people, too, and endless batches of icy-cold blended margaritas. This recipe uses a mixture of freshly squeezed lemon and lime juice, resulting in a drink that is wildly tart. Don't bother using the most expensive tequila, an affordable tequila works better in margaritas. To look at the recipe,
1/2 cup coarse salt
1/2 cup (about 4 limes) freshly squeezed lime juice, plus 1 lime cut in half for the glasses
2 tablespoons (about 1 lemon) freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup triple sec
1 white tequila
- Pour the salt onto a small plate; set aside.
- Rub the outside rim of each glass with the cut lime. Dip each glass into the reserved salt; set aside.
- Place lime juice, lemon juice, triple sec, and 3 cups ice in a blender, and puree on low speed until completely blended.
- Add tequila and blend for 2 seconds. Pour margaritas into the reserved glasses, over ice, and serve immediately.
