  1. Ok. So, my husband claims i make the BEST Margarita's EVER. My recipe is similar to this but BETTER! For one Margarita, exactly the same instructions for the lime and salt on the glass rims. Then, in a shaker, 2 oz. of Agave WHITE Tequila, 1 oz Fresh squeezed lime juice, 3/4 oz. GRAND MARNIER, 1 tablespoon simple syrup, ice cubes (about 5 or 6) and shake approximately 9 to 10 shakes. Strain into limed and salted margarita glass. Place slice of fresh lime on rim and serve. Absolutely wonderful! NOTE: if you prefer your Margarita's on the sweeter side, add a BIT more simple syrup. Conversely, if less sweet is your preference, add LESS simple syrup. Simple syrup can be made adding 1 cup regular sugar to a lidded jar, then add 1 cup water to the jar. Place lid on jar and shake until sugar and water are totally combined. This can be kept in fridge for a week or two.
  2. This was The Best!!! Thanks for the Post! I actually used a tequila infused with Honey! It's called cha cha cha the Best tasting I have had thus far! 1/4 cup cha & 1 Large Lime, 1/4 cup of Triple Sec, salted rim shake your ingredients and the Ultimate Margarita!! Had guests ask me for the recipe they All thanked me so I must Thank You!!!
  3. Way to strong? No way it is just right. I just had to add a little sugar but that could be because the triple sec I used, who knows. After that was very good but not the best I ever had.
  4. Simple and perfect! Unfortunately, I ran out of tequila and couldn't make more. ;)
  5. There`s nothing like a Margarita made with fresh lime juice! I used Grand Marnier for the orange liqueur.
