Margarita

Margarita

Saltiness, sweetness and sharpness all at once. A sweetened version of one of the most classic cocktails.

[Classic] [Frozen] [Glamour] [Happy Hour] [Party] [Poolside] [Refreshing] [Strong] [Sweet]

Ingredients [ oz | cl ][ My Bar ]
1 12 oz Tequila[ Add ]
34 oz Orange Liqueur[ Add ]
2 oz Limeade (Frozen)[ Add ]

Method: Prepare in shaker
Glass: Margarita
Recipe:

  1. Mix the Tequila and Cointreau (or Triple sec). They need to come out of the freezer, otherwise let the mix rest in the freezer until very cold.
  2. To prepare the glass, add salt to the glass rim. The salt will hold if you wet the rim with a lime wedge just before you dip the glass in salt.
  3. Add ice and the frozen juice concentrate to the mix and shake!
  4. Feel free to add less (or more) juice concentrate to make the drink stronger or less.

History

This is not the original Margarita recipe.

This one took me quite a while and lots of unsuccessful attempts before I got it right. First, I tried crushing ice cubes with a hammer (!!). Then with a blender. Then I tried letting the mix sit in the Freezer for a while... Until finally I got the idea of using frozen lime juice concentrate to get a slush-like texture and a sweeter taste...
