    Bev's Note:

    This is a wonderful recipe for Margaritas on the Rocks by the pitcher-full! It is best to prepare the lime-lemon juice and zests mixture before hand to allow them to meld appropriately -- Cooking time reflects refrigeration time. I discovered this in Cook's Illustrated Magazine -- just in time for summer! I have altered the ingredients to suit my personal taste. Enjoy!

      Unfortunately this does not really make a pitcherful of Margaritas. It only serves about 4. It tasted OK, much better than a mix, but when we saw that it wouldn't be enough, we added a can of thawed Bacardi Margarita mix along with a little more than 1/2 can of tequila 1/2 can of Triple Sec. FANTASTIC!!! So much better with these additions. Because these are strong, this quantity was about right for 8 of us. Try this, you won't be disappointed!!!

      Oooh yummy! Love the ease of making a big batch! And i ran out of lemons for a full 1/2 cup so I subbed one orange at the last minute. Gave it a nice sweetness. Thanks for the recipe, Bev!!

      I only had limes and could only come up with 3/4 cup juice. It was still great! It made 4 drinks. I will make this again and put it up against any bottle mix.
