    Share your margarita recipes!

    Summer is almost over! And I have not spent nearly enough time relaxing in the sun with margaritas. So all weekend I've indulged in my favorite margarita recipe:

    Few shots of tequila
    Shot and a half of triple sec
    Shot of blue curaco
    Lime juice (to taste)
    Simple syrup (to taste)
    Ice
    Blender

    But I would like to venture out and try something more exotic, with ingredients that won't break the bank. So Foo, share your favorite margarita (or summer cocktail) recipes!

    mistake #1. You need to be specific about your tequila. Srsly.

    #2, too many ingredients.


    Dex's Perfect Rita (thank you St. Pete's Dancing Marlin in Dallas for the inspiration)
    4 oz Herradura Silver
    Simple Syrup
    handful of fresh squeezed limes

    combine, shake and pour over ice.

    I'm not a tequila snob -- I save that attitude for beer Right now I'm using a bottle of Cabo Wabo that I bought when I graduated college last year. I'm surprised there's not even any triple sec -- I'll have to give that recipe a shot, because it certainly is cheap to make. Especially if I substitute that Herradura for something cheaper

    with so few ingredients, a cheaper tequila will hurt you. 'specially cabo wabo. Man, that stuff just sucks.

    The best affordable tequila? --and one that makes smashing margs? This is your path, my son:

    step 1: cut a lemon or lime
    step 2: eat lemon or lime
    step 3: don't take your daily vitamin C
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Step 1: Go to the Rio Grande restaurant.
    Step 2: Order margarita.
    Step 3: Become incoherent very rapidly.

    Yeah -- it's not like I'll be buying Montezuma or McCormick's. And from what I recall from when I was working at a liquor store, a fifth of herradura isn't that expensive anyway.

    In addition to cheap tequila, I'm surprised no one's called you out yet on the blender. Save the alco-slushies for daiquiris.

    I'll reference post #2 for everything else. For me, gotta have large-grain salt on the rim of the glass also.

    With all the lime juice, tripl sec, marg mix etc, it is a waste to use premium tequila in a mix made margarita, as you cannot taste the tequila anyway.

    I do agree with Dex on the simple rita. If all you are using just lime juice and tequila, go for a better grade of tequila. For cheap mix made ritas, I use Lunazul or Jose Cuervo.

    Herradurra is a very nice tequila for sipping, etc.

    I've posted it before, but... "Margarita Light"

    Using a standard double-shot glass as a measure and a standard 16oz pint glass and shaker..

    Mix:

    1 double shot lime juice
    1/2 double key-lime juice
    1/2 double lemon juice
    3 packets of Splenda

    Place the above in a pint glass, fill remainder of pint glass (should be about half) with water and stir well

    Procedure:

    Fill shaker with about with crushed ice

    Pour the following into the shaker over the ice:

    1 double triple-sec
    1 double silver tequila
    1 cap of Blue Curaçao

    Fill the remainder of space in the shaker with the mix. If you use more ice, you will get stronger margaritas (and less volume). Less ice will result in weaker margaritas.

    Close the shaker and shake vigorously

    Pour into salted glass and enjoy. Makes one large margarita.

    3 oz. Milagro Tequila 1Tbs Rosa's Lime Juice
    Shake on ice and strain into a big martini glass with salted rim

    Use more or less Rosa's depending on personal taste preference.

    When "initiated" with the Tour de Bar guys I used to ride with on my "suicide" missions Thursday night (I miss them) - wild mtb guys all lighted up - at the end of my first ride with them (only a few girls rode with them, I became more of a regular) - pulled up to favorite bar and did a Stuntman and was "nicknamed".

    Stuntman can also be called a Mexican Car Crash or a Suicide Shot

    Salt - you snort a line
    Tequilla - shoot it
    Lime - squeeze it in yer eye.

    You end up looking/sounding like Popeye. Argh!!!

    And of course as new people came - we had several rounds of stuntmen ....

    Daiquiri usually incorporates a light rum

    I've made a Punchbowl of margarittas - with a can of limeade, tequila and used some triple sec and made a punchbowl of yummy margaritta like drinks, freeze frozen fruits in ice cube trays and let them float - serve with margarita glasses with a plate of salt to dip the glass lip into for full effect.

    Those were gooood parties! I miss giving parties. I had themed parties. Sigh.

    good idea.
    I could easily see doing a bowl or 'ritas and a bowl of daquiris this way....maybe even several flavors of daquiris.
