"This beats any pre-made margarita mix you can find. I prefer mine straight-up, but you can add salt to the rim if you like."

1 1/4 cups
fresh lime juice
Triple Sec or other orange liqueur
fresh lemon juice
Had to add a little sugar, but the fresh lime juice hits the spot on a summer night!
This recipe made a large pitcher of margaritas, but they were too tart to drink. I had added about 1/4 cup of sugar already, but it was still way too tart. I made a simple syrup with about a cup of sugar, added that to the finished pitcher, and that made this recipe very tasty. There is nothing better than margaritas made with fresh squeezed lime juice.
very good. I use agave sryup to sweeten a bit as it a little too tart for me.
I added agave syrup as one reviewer recommended and this was delicious...and perfectly sweet!!!
Taking the advice of other reviewers I added sweetener and these turned out fab... Just got back from Mexico and these tasted just as good as there.
