Marvelous Margarita Recipe

/ / Leave a comment

A hot summer’s day and a cold, frosty beer, or refreshing cocktail, go together so well, don’t they?

I love to sip on one of my favourite beers, ciders, or wine coolers, whether I’m by the pool, by the lake, or in the backyard.

One beverage I never really enjoyed at home, until now, was a slushy cocktail. I usually reserve drinking cocktails, like Margarita’s, for when I enjoy a dinner out at a restaurant.

That changed this summer though, when my partner decided he was going to come up with his own homemade Margarita cocktail for us to enjoy.

And enjoy we have – a few times!

In fact, I enjoy this recipe so much, I asked him to share it here on the blog.

As you will see, it’s quick and easy to make your own Marvelous Margarita – whatever way you like it!

My personal preference? Slushy!

I must admit, it was fun being a taste-tester for this post!

Cheers!


Marvelous Margarita Recipe

Here’s my quick and easy recipe for a great homemade Margarita. The recipe will make two normal sized drinks or one large drink like in the pictures below. You can make it neat, add ice, or make a slushy!

Whatever you prefer, this is what you’ll need.

Ingredients:

  • 3 Ounces of Tequila
  • 2 Ounces of Lime Juice
  • ¾ Ounces of Cointreau
  • 1 ounce of Simple Syrup
  • 2 Tablespoons of Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon of large Sea Salt or Kosher Salt
  • Fresh Limes for garnish
  • Ice

Marvelous Margarita Recipe

Simple syrup:

Using a 1:1 ratio of sugar and water (1 cup of water and sugar will make enough for a few drinks), heat ingredients until liquid is clear (do not boil). Refrigerate.

In a shallow plate, mix the coarse sea salt and sugar together. In another shallow plate, add roughly an ounce of lime juice.

Marvelous Margaritas Fresh Limes

Fresh Lime for garnishment.

Marvelous Margarita Recipe

If you choose to make a slushy Margarita, combine 3 ounces of Tequila, 2 ounces of Lime Juice, 1 ounce of Simple Syrup, and 3/4 of an ounce of Cointreau.  Add roughly 500 – 750ml of ice cubes and blend in blender until you reach your preferred consistency. Have a glass ready. Dip the rim of the glass in lime juice. Rotate the rim in the sugar and salt mixture. Pour the drink mix into your glass and garnish with 1 or 2 slices of lime.

Here’s a short video showing you how to make a Margarita with ice cubes.

In this case, fill the cocktail shaker with ice and then add 3 ounces of Tequila, 2 ounces of Lime Juice, 1 ounce of Simple Syrup, and 3/4 of an ounce of Cointreau. Shake the mixture for roughly 30 seconds (condensation will start to form on the cocktail shaker).

Have a glass ready. Dip the rim of the glass in lime juice. Rotate the rim in the sugar and salt mixture. Add ice and then pour the drink. Garnish with 1 or 2 slices of lime.

Either version is delicious and goes down like water on a hot day – be careful, they do pack a mean punch!
