Which Tequila should I use to make margaritas?
Tequila is all about preference. For me I like silver tequila in my margaritas. My favorite 3 silver tequilas are
- Patron Silver
Now don’t worry if you only have gold tequila. It’s all about your personal preference and what fits in your budget. Let’s face it tequila can get expensive.
Lemonade margaritas are easy to make with whatever you have on hand. It could be any flavor lemonade. Or you can use lemonade and any muddled fruit to create your own fresh flavor. Just use the recipe below as your base and your can become your own bartender.
Have a can of frozen lemonade in your freezer? Dig that out and make a frozen margarita.
SALT OR SUGAR?
Now this is all about personal preference. I am a sugar or nothing girl when it comes to my margaritas. If salt even touches the rim I just can’t do it. Want to be fancy and impress your friends? Get a glass rimmer.
- 4 oz. Strawberry Lemonade
- 1/2 oz. Lime Juice
- 1/2 oz triple sec or orange liqueur
- 2 oz Tequila (I prefer clear)
- Top with strawberries and slice of lime
- Add all ingredients to your martini shaker. Tip if you don't have a shaker a mason jar works just fine if you strain the ice. Make sure the covers on tight and shake it! Up, down and all around.
- Now pour into a glass over ice and top with strawberries and a slice of lime.
To make it extra special add some muddle strawberries.
