Best Margarita

This weekend, while my mom and sister were in town for dress shopping, I decided to make margaritas. I've had this recipe from Southern Living forever, but just hadn't put it to use. Seriously, best margaritas I've ever made by far! It's all about the fresh lime juice, you must! try them.

Classic Margarita

Prep: 10 min. Make any size batch of this recipe and all the variations by simply multiplying the ingredient measurements by the desired number of servings. For larger batches, stir together all ingredients in a pitcher until powdered sugar is dissolved. Chill and serve over ice. For a sweeter drink, use 1/2 cup powdered sugar instead of 1/3 cup.

Yield: Makes 1 serving

Fresh lime wedge (optional)
Margarita salt (optional)
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons orange liqueur
2 tablespoons tequila
1/3 cup powdered sugar
Garnish: lime slice
1. Rub rim of a chilled margarita glass with lime wedge, and dip rim in salt to coat, if desired.

2. Fill cocktail shaker half full with ice. Add lime juice, liqueur, tequila, and powdered sugar; cover with lid, and shake until thoroughly chilled. Strain into prepared glass. Garnish, if desired, and serve immediately.


  1. Those sound delicious! I'm excited to make your recipe! Thanks.


  2. Yum! Those sound delicioso! I made some homemade margaritas for a party last summer. You had to make your own simple syrup to go in it and it was to die for!!!! Homemade always makes such a difference.
