Directions

  1. Wash the lemons and limes, and cut the fruit into quarters. Squeeze juice from the fruit quarters into a 1-gallon glass ice tea jar, and place the squeezed fruit quarters into the jar. Fill the jar with ice cubes, and pour in the sugar and tequila. Top off the jar with more ice cubes if some have melted from the tequila. Seal the jar, and wrap the jar with a wet (but not sopping wet) hand towel.
  2. Gather 8 or so people in a circle, and pass the jar from one to the next, each person shaking the jar for 3 to 5 minutes. The drink is ready when the sugar has dissolved and the hand towel freezes and sticks to the jar. Dispense into ice-filled glasses and serve.

Ok I lived in the southwest for 15 years and know my margaritas. This is a really good marg. My Dad is famous for his marg recipe and it is GOOD, so technically I will have to give this a 4.9 lest I be disowned by my DD. But what I love about this is the fresh taste. No mixer, just fresh fruit and sugar. Tip: if you don't want to spend forever shaking to dissolve the sugar, make some simple syrup (just water and sugar...recipe on this site) in advance and chill it. Then add the fruit, then the tequila. This will water it down just slightly but trust me, this is a VERY strong drink and a tiny bit of water won't change that! Thanks BlondeJJ, and by the way, I had almost as much fun photographing this as I did drinking it!
