For me that's a 4 star and for DH that's 3. Cause he told me it has way too many lime juice and usually he likes a drink that is sour. I used fresh lime juice. Thanks Ellie :) Made for Newest Zaar tag under the 24-hour rule.
At first I found it pretty strong but after a few sips I really liked it!!! I got 3 tbsps lime juice from 1 lime but the second drink i needed 1 1/2 limes. I might try the bottled lime juice, see if i notice a difference.
For years, DH has been on a quest for the perfect margarita, and in that time I tried many a version that I felt was not quite right. The other night he made the Coyote Margarita, and when I tried it, I said, "this is it" and will be my margarita recipe of choice from now on. DH also really liked it. He likes a little stronger hint of tequila, so he added an extra splash to the finished version. Thank you so much for posting this keeper!
