Pitcher-Perfect Margarita

What a bunch of snobs!

I've made this. I used Roses Lime Juice and skipped the simple syrup. Tasty margaritas for a nice price.

Almost Arnie

Bacardi Limon is very underated and virtually unknown. Delicious flavored rum. And limoncello? FAHGETABOUTIT! This is a winner all the way.

Basic Bloody Mary Mix

Sriracha is tastier than Tobasco. It has garlic in it.

Perfect Margarita

I've been experimenting with margaritas lately as well. I like them well enough that I can't afford to keep myself in Patron & Cointreau! Research will show you Margas should only have 3 ingredients: 100% agave tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice... no salt. Salt was traditionally used to help with the nasty taste of cheap tequila. If you use quality stuff you won't miss the salt. I can't stomach salt in margas now. Patron Silver is the best for an awesome margarita, but I use 1800 Silver as an acceptable substitute. Its a pure agave tequila, & has a completely different flavor profile than 1800 Resposado (ick!). I've experimented with GranGala (decent & affordable), Grand Marnier (too sweet), domestic triple sec (i could go on & on about triple sec...), and Cointreau (the best option for a great Margarita). The quality of limes (& most citrus fruit) is definetly poor right now, due to adverse weather conditions last year. The fruit tends to be very tart & bitter, with zero sweetness. I agree with the addition of simple syrup to help the limes.

2 oz. silver tequila
2 oz. Cointreau
2 oz. fresh lime juice
1 oz. simple syrup

Shake for 15 seconds with ice. Strain into a rocks glass. No salt, please.
