This is the ONLY way to make margaritas. However, if you prefer the flavor of corn syrup and food coloring tequila or lime this recipe is probably not the recipe for you. It's a tragedy that 4 of the 5 top-rated recipes on this site use frozen limeade instead of limes, and the 5th uses store-bought sour mix. This recipe does take more time, but it is WORTH it! My husband no longer even bothers ordering margaritas when we go out.
The trick is the zest - makes it so yummy!
* We usually need to use more limes, just make sure you have a half cup of juice.
* If you think it's too pulpy, it's easy to strain it. We do this maybe half the time - usually if we're serving to guests.
* We usually use Cointreau as our orange liqueur, but GrandMa works just as well.
* Letting it rest 24 hours is great, but I would just say let it sit as long as you can. Still tasty either way!
