Citrus Margarita

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Lvs2Cook

A fresh tasting margarita! If I am using a premium tequila, I don't salt the rim since I think it takes away from the flavor of the tequila.

Great recipe! A bit healthier than store bought margarita mix. I used half the amount of triple sec, half simple syrup, and lemon juice instead of grapefruit. It was a hit with my guests. Thank you.
