We’re happy to share one of our favorite cocktails with you. A fresh margarita tastes like spring!
No artificial sweeteners or extra sugar in this recipe – we stripped the margarita down to enjoy its essence. As such, you will get the best result when selecting top shelf ingredients as there are no artificial sweeteners to mask lower quality ingredients. Rule of thumb for this recipe: if you wouldn’t sip the tequila straight, don’t serve it to your guests.
The beauty of this cocktail is that it evolves as you sip it – served over ice, your first sip will taste different from your last as your swirl your drink around the ice cubes finishing it to the last drop.
Our “Party Pitcher” Recipe
(Makes 16 – 3.5 oz. drinks)
- 750 ml bottle 100% blue agave Reposado Tequila – (you can substitute 100% blue agave Blanco Tequila)
- 20 oz. Cointreau
- 12 oz. lime juice
- 16 lime wheels (4 limes)
- Stir Tequila, Cointreau and lime juice together in tall glass pitcher – leave stirrer in the pitcher so that the margaritas can be given a fresh stir before stirring.
- Serve alongside a bucket of ice (don’t forget the tongs) and lime wheels.
- Have some fun with the glasses, everything from stemless wineglasses to vintage inspired lowball glasses is fair game.
Note: I always like to personally serve my guests their first drink and then allow them to help themselves to a refill at their leisure.
Just because you are not hosting a party, doesn’t mean you can’t mix it up with margaritas. We broke the recipe down for you when you don’t quite need a pitcher.
Just a “Couple Cocktails” Recipe
(Makes 4 – 3.5 oz. drinks)
- 6 oz.1100% blue agave Reposado Tequila – (you can substitute 100% blue agave Blanco Tequila)
- 5 oz. Cointreau
- 3 oz. lime juice
- 4 lime wheels (1 lime)
When making just a couple cocktails, I like to add the Tequila, Cointreau, lime juice and a few ice cubes to a cocktail shaker, give it a good shake and then pour into an ice-filled lowball glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
