Simple Margaritas

Monday, March 25, 2019

I am a big fan of margaritas and to me, there is nothing more refreshing than a margarita made with real ingredients.  I hate pre-made and frozen mixes. #Yuck  They are so artificial and sugary tasting and pretty much a hangover in a glass if you ask me.

If you happen to feel the same way that I do then you must try this fantastic four-ingredient simple margarita recipe.  One of my besties and I sipped on these last week during an impromptu girls night in and we both just loved how light, bright, refreshing they were.  So go ahead and make these for your next Taco Tuesday, girls night or gathering!

Simple Margaritas
{Yield: 5 servings}

8 ounces silver tequila
8 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
4 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons simple syrup or light agave nectar

To prepare the glasses, start by pouring a thin layer of salt onto a small plate.  Then rub a lime wedge around the top edge of the glass and dip the glasses into the salt so that it sticks. 

In a pitcher, stir together the tequila, lime juice, orange juice and simple syrup or agave nectar.  Tip: you do not need to purchase simple syrup, just go ahead and make some at home by adding equal parts granulated sugar and water into a pot.  Bring to a boil while stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved.  Remove the pot from the heat, allow the syrup to cool completely then store in an airtight jar or container for up to 4 weeks in the fridge.  I keep mine in a Mason Jar!

If you are making the margaritas in advance, cover the pitcher and place in the fridge for up to 4 hours.  However, if you are ready to serve the drinks right away, add ice to the prepared glasses, pour and enjoy!

If you would like to make these for a larger crowd, just double or triple the recipe.  It is that simple!
