Favorite margarita recipe - frozen or not!
 
Will be making some this week :D

BeachMan 09-26-2017 08:34 AM

This is my favorite, but I like many:

Margaritas
Makes 1 quart (4 to 6 servings)
4 teaspoons grated lime zest
1/2 cup lime juice from 2 to 3 medium limes
4 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1/2 cup lemon juice from 2 to 3 medium lemons
1/4 cup superfine sugar
pinch table salt
2 cups crushed ice
1 cup 100 percent agave tequila, preferably Reposado
1 cup Triple Sec

Combine lime zest and juice, lemon zest and juice, sugar, and salt in large liquid measuring cup; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until flavors meld, 4 to 24 hours.

Divide 1 cup crushed ice between 4 or 6 margarita or double old-fashioned glasses. Strain juice mixture into 1-quart pitcher or cocktail shaker. Add tequila, Triple Sec, and remaining crushed ice; stir or shake until thoroughly combined and chilled, 20 to 60 seconds. Strain into ice-filled glasses; serve immediately.

Rick Bayless's recipe:

2 oz. tequila
1 oz. Triple Sec or Controy (Cointreau, if it's payday)
1 oz. simple syrup (prefer 1 part sugar to 1 part water. Usually simple syrup is 1:1)
1 oz. fresh fresh-squeezed lime juice
A slice of lime for garnish and be sure to salt the rim!

Fill your glass with ice, pour in ingredients, shake a little (not stirred)

Enjoy!

I do this on a daily basis. For a few minutes everyday my mind returns to Mexico, white beach sand, turquoise water and blue sky. It also prevents scurvy. :)

Splenda?! :doh2:

Sounds good. Sounds strong. No salt. Most of us need no more salt in our diets ;). Splenda for diabetics, or Stevia, that is correct.

You can buy simple syrup made with Splenda.

This is a good recipe as well, similar to my daiquiri:

2 oz dark rum
1 oz simple syrup
1 oz lime

I agree, splenda has no place in anything, especially a margarita.

I will try and conform to your way of thinking in the future.

Perfected after years of trial & error.

* Good blue agave tequila, blanco or repo.

* Fresh squeezed lime juice. Roughly one juicy lime per Marg.

* Splash of Cointreau

* Small amount of agave nectar. I don't measure, but just use small bar spoon and amount depends on how many Marg's being prepared.

* Secret ingredient: splash of ice cold water. Again, amount dependent on quantity.

Stirred over cracked ice. Strained into glasses with fresh cracked ice. No bloody salt on the rim for God's sake. Try not to be a complete gringo. ;)

Nope, splenda will never be in a margarita I have.

I am perfectly capable of limiting myself to one full sugar margarita in an evening currently and that won't change if I happen to become diabetic. The difference in sugar between a full sugar margarita and a splenda magarita is neglible if you limit your consumption.

It depends on how much sugar you use. If you use two teaspoons, as many do that is about 9 grams of carbohydrates. If you are limiting your carbs to less than 30 grams a day, that is a big amount.

It can vary by individual, that is for sure. For those on a low carb regime, it matters a great deal.

There's 7g of carbs in the juice of a lime alone... so if you're trying to stick to a keto diet, lol at drinking any Margaritas.
