For a Single Margarita

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.

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.
