The Best Lime Margarita
The Lime Margarita is, by far, one of my all time favorite cocktails. It’s the basic foundation for all Margaritas, from Strawberry to Mango and even a fantastic Watermelon or Blueberry Margarita because you’ve got to add Lime. So starting out with that foundation, I’m going to show you a real simple and basic way to make a frozen Margarita and a Margarita on the Rocks using my Lime Margarita Mixer recipe.
Virgin Lime Margarita
If you want to make a virgin Lime Margarita, it’s easy to do. Just leave the Tequila and Liqueur(Triple Sec) out. Triple Sec provides an orange flavor that helps balance out the bitter taste in the drink, so I would recommend adding orange juice to the mix, instead. If you didn’t get a chance to read the Lime Margarita Mixer Recipe I posted, you should because there are a lot of different things you can do to tweak your Margarita’s until they are absolutely perfect for you.
When it comes to Tequila, you’re going to drink what you can afford or what you’re willing to pay for. But, like any Alcohol, the quality goes up the more money you’re willing to spend and a Lime Margarita is no exception. This drink gets better with higher quality booze. Personally I land right in the middle. When I buy cheap, I regret it and I regret it bad. My personal favorite is Cazadorez, which runs around $30 a 5th. Which, of course compared to the almighty Patron, is a great price. But I’d be lucky to see a bottle of either one of those even on my birthday. Cuervo is alright but I really don’t prefer it. For the same price and in this video I used Lunazul. I’m not affiliated with them and I don’t make a dime for talking about, for or against any of these brands, it’s just my personal opinion. So you do what you want and my the Margarita Gods smile upon you!
