I first had these served to me at a pool party hosted by my best friend and worst enemy Edith Gump ten years ago. I held her head under water until she surrendered the recipe. She is a horrible woman who back-stabs me at any given opportunity. But- that Hag has some recipes that are beyond comparison. This is one of them. I often drink this so I can tolerate her.
- 1 1⁄4 cups sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup club soda
- 1 egg white
- 1 pint lime juice (bottled)
- 5 ounces tequila
- 2 ounces triple sec
- 1 cup ice, crushed
- Blend all in a blender.
- Wipe the glass rim with a wedge of lime and then dredge the rim in a mixture of 1/2 salt and 1/2 sugar mixed together. If you are reading this recipe -- you know how to season a margarita glass.
- Note: the egg white is integral in this drink. It makes it nice and frothy like an Orange Julius. Please don't omit it.
You or Edith must have a really big blender. I halved it and doubled the amounts of tequila and triple sec. It's good though, very limey and sweet which I like.
I haven't tried your drink yet, though I will. I did really enjoy your comments of the hag. I'm still laughing. She must be a real dandy. We have one in our life we call the hog.
I am not sure which was better, the drink or the description of how you came by the recipes! This is a delicious Margarita, and I would NEVER have thought of adding egg whites, so I am so glad I found it. This will be the Margarita recipe of choice in our household from now on. Now I can see the possibilites....adding strawberries, mango, pineapple....mmmm.... Thanks for a delicous recipe Pot Scrubber!
