Texas Style Margaritas Recipe
by Cindi Sutter, Founder of The Spirited Table®
These portions make about 4 Margaritas based on a 6 oz. can; so adjust for the limeade can size and your guests list needs.
6 oz can frozen limeade
Cointreau or Gran Marnier
Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila
Limes & Salt
- Put one can frozen limeade in a blender. Use this can and fill 1/2 to 3/4 of can with tequila. Use the same can and fill to about 1/4 – 1/2 with Cointreau or Gran Marnier. Squeeze 2 limes per can into the mixture. This quantity makes about 4-5 ritas.
- If you are serving ritas on the rocks, just add 1/2 can water to above mixture and pour over ice.
- If you prefer frozen margaritas pour the above ingredients (#1.) in a blender, add ice and grind.
- Repeat your preferred process for the quantity you need. This is best if prepared ahead of time and stored in pitchers or jugs in the refrigerator.
- Slice extra limes for serving. When ready to serve, take a sliced lime and rim the glass with the lime then dip the rim of the glass in salt. The easiest way to do this, is pour a lot of salt onto a saucer or bread plate.
- Drop a slice of lime in the drink.
Extra limes always make it better.
These are Texas Margaritas so drink with caution.
