For a Single Margarita

Salt the rim of a 12 oz. glass. Fill with cubed ice.

In a shaker, combine…

1 ½ oz. Tequila (the better the Tequila, the better your ‘rita will be)

½ oz. Triple Sec

4 oz. Sweet & Sour

Stir together (or cap the shaker, and shake ingredients), and pour over ice. Garnish with a fresh lime wedge. If you prefer your margarita frozen, you can pour all the ingredients – including the ice – into your blender, and blend it to a slushy consistency.

For a Pitcher of Margaritas (yields approx 4 ‘ritas)

Fill a pitcher with cubed ice.

In your blender, or other container, combine …

6 oz. Tequila

2 oz. Triple Sec

16 oz. Sweet & Sour

Blend ingredients together and pour over ice in pitcher. If you prefer frozen margaritas, put all the ingredients – including the ice – into your blender, and blend it to a slushy consistency. Serve in salted-rim glasses, with lime garnishes.

Fun ‘Rita Hint: Give your margaritas an extra kick by adding fresh fruit purees (strawberry, mango, pineapple), fruit juices, or even topping them off with your favorite liqueur.
