      Excellent margarita recipe. I agree that the use of fresh lemons, limes & their zests make the difference from average margaritas. This has such a fresh taste. I used 5 limes and 2 lemons to get the specified amounts. Thank you, Lawsome. :-)

      This is an awesome margarita! The use of the fresh citrus and zest makes all the difference here. I skipped having to make the fruit juice syrup, already having sugar syrup on hand. My cocktail shaker was not large enough to hold all the ingredients, so I used my blender, adding about 1 cup of chopped ice to the mix. I used Patron Silver Tequila and Cointreau instead of the Triple Sec. I will most definitely be serving this recipe again! Thank you, Lawsome!
