Today I’m excited to share a recipe for homemade margarita mix. It’s insanely straightforward to make, with just two ingredients plus water! The difference in between homemade mix and something you buy in ~ the store is type of insane, though. Sometimes the store-bought mixers can be syrupy and gross. Homemade tastes SO lot fresher. Entirely worth the effort!

Squeeze the lime juice into a key or measure up cup (I love this handy tool for squeezing lemons and also limes!). Heat the water and sugar in a saucepan end medium heat until the sugar has dissolved. Allow the mixture cool a little before including in the lime juice, mix together, and pour right into a bottle. Refrigerate the mix for up to two weeks.

It’s perfect to do a large batch before parties. Girlfriend can conveniently tweak the proportions to do a huge or small batch relying on how countless you’ll be serving and I love cooking in cute enameled cast iron pots like this!

To do a margarita here is the ratio, simply mix 1 shooting of tequila, fifty percent a shot of triple sec, include ice, then fill a standard margarita glass with the mix (how cool space these cactus glasses!).

It’s at sight simple! Don’t forget come salt your rim and try a lime flavored salt if you’d like. You can make funny variations by using half grapefruit juice, orange juice or berry juice instead of lime juice. I simply tried my an initial bourbon margarita (just sub bourbon because that tequila) and it was yes, really fun and also different. Don’t be afraid to experiment and also check out our whole archive of delicious cocktails (like this spicy watermelon mezcal margarita), you really can’t mess it up!
