– a small town, midwestern girl living in sunny South Florida with my husband and our two golden doodles.
Welcome to my lifestyle blog dedicated to good food, better drinks, easy entertaining ideas and laid-back living.
Sharing a cocktail, hosting a party with good friends, trying new recipes, making memories over a thoughtfully laid out grazing board; these are the moments I love to live and share with others.
Thanks for being here!
Sometimes you just feel like enjoying a classic lime margarita. Maybe the weather is just right, or it’s Taco Tuesday and a margarita is calling your name. This simple margarita recipe is worth memorizing. That way, you can whip it out at a moments notice and impress your friends or even just yourself! It’s so simple and satisfying, and it’s made with just 4 ingredients that are easy to always have on hand.
Once you’ve tried a margarita with fresh lime juice straight from the lime, you’ll never go back to using margarita mix ever again.
All you need to make a classic and simple margarita is your favorite tequila (we like 1800 Silver Tequila), Orange Liqueur like Cointreau, Triple Sec or Grand Mariner (I like to use this local Florida orange liqueur), Agave Nectar and Limes. That’s it! Like I said before, all of these items are so easy to always have on hand, so easy you may find yourself making margaritas a little too often (if there is such a thing!)Print
This simple margarita recipe comes together with just four ingredients that you probably already have on hand!
Make it a skinny margarita by switching out the orange liqueur with 1/2 oz freshly squeeze orange juice. Top with an ounce of soda water. Enjoy!
Turning this simple margarita recipe into a skinny margarita recipe couldn’t be easier. Simply switch out the 1/2 oz of Orange Liqueur for 1/2 oz of freshly squeezed orange juice, ditch the agave or half it, and top your margarita off with an ounce of soda water. There you have it: a skinny margarita!
This margarita is also super simple to turn into a large batch Pitcher Margarita that will be sure to please a crowd! Here are the measurements I suggest for up to 10 glasses of margarita:
15 oz Tequila
15 oz Lime Juice
5 oz Agave Nectar
5 oz Orange Liqueur
Pour all ingredients in a 40 oz pitcher, stir and store in the fridge until ready to serve. Stir again before serving and enjoy!
