National Margarita Day was back in February, and Cinco de Mayo is still a couple of weeks away. Yet here I am with a margarita recipe. What am I thinking?!
Oh, you know what I’m thinking. Who needs an excuse to drink margaritas?! Especially stunning – and scrumptious – fresh mango margaritas?!
There’s no margarita like a margarita made with fresh-squeezed lime juice. Period. And once you try these, I can all but guarantee you’ll forever eschew margarita mix. There’s simply no comparison. Fresh lime margaritas are so, so good.
This classic margarita recipe combines fresh lime juice, tequila, orange liqueur, and sugar over crushed ice in a glass rimmed with equal parts sugar and coarse salt. They’re potent, no doubt about it, but the perfect ratio of lime to sugar to tequila to Triple Sec makes them go down easily – sometimes a little too easily – so watch yourself!
