A good margarita is hard to find. Usually made with premixed nonsense, crazy fruit blends and ingredients that are way too sweet, it has transformed from a simple pleasure into a tropical nightmare.
Well the time has come to bring the margarita back.
A few notes. Use only 100 percent agave tequila. I like to use a Reposado, but silver (Plato) tequila is fine. Don’t waste an Anejo for a margarita. My wife prefers blended margaritas but if you want it on the rocks follow the recipe, but just don’t turn on the blender.
Classic Blended Margarita
- 3-4 limes
- Triple Sec
- 100 percent Agave Tequila (Lunazul is a good choice)
Squeeze limes in blender until there is about 1/3 cup of juice. Fill blender with ice leaving just enough room for the cap to go on. Fill blender half way with triple sec. Fill the rest of the way with tequila. Blend until smooth and thick. Keep the pitcher in the freezer until ready to serve.
