This was a recipe born out of necessity. For Amanda’s bridal shower, one of her friends bought a mix of margaritas…which was downed by the guests in about a half hour. So I got to work making homemade ones with the 80 zillion limes that Becky had left over. They actually turned out quite well, even if they aren’t anything too fancy.
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup superfine sugar
2 tbsp lemon zest
2 tbsp lime zest
1 cup tequila (100% agave if you don’t want a hangover)
1 cup triple sec
soda water, to taste (so that it’s diluted but doesn’t taste watery)
Combine non alcoholic ingredients in a pitcher. If you have time, let sit for awhile.
Add alcohol, and soda water to taste. Serve over ice.
