After tweaking with several other margarita recipes, I finally found a way to get that ‘real’ margarita taste in a pitcher size for parties.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups tequila
  • 1 cup triple sec
  • ¾ cup fresh lime juice
  • ¾ cup sweetened lime juice
  • 3 cups ice
  • kosher salt
  • 8 lime wedges

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Combine the tequila, triple sec, fresh lime juice, sweetened lime juice, and ice in a large pitcher; stir.
  2. 2 Pour the kosher salt onto a plate. Rub the rim of a glass with a lime wedge. Dip the rim of the glass into the salt; fill glass with margarita mixture; repeat for each serving.

  4. A bit too strong.
  5. Besides making Pina Coladas last night/this morning for my GF's b-day party I made margaritas using this recipe..... The first batch I made I did use the 2 cups of tequila and it was strong!!!! Too strong!!! From there on out I only used one cup and it was still pretty strong using that. All - Read more ...
  6. Quite good but fairly strong margarita. I put the mix in the blender & added a quart of frozen strawberries and a cup of ice & it was a great addition and calmed it down a bit. Thanks!
  7. Yum. I may add some cointreau next time.
  8. I really needed an idea of where to start with the measuring proration for a pitcher. This is a good base but was a little strong for my taste.
  9. So good I've made these a few times. everyone loves them
