Ready for some Margaritas? It is HOT here in the Midwest right now!
For us, summertime means a lot of outdoor entertaining. That often involves cocktails.
Although I love a good margarita, I hate that all the mixes I have found contain high fructose corn syrup, lots of sugar and food dyes. YUCK!
So, I decided to play around with creating a version that contained only “real” (if you can count tequila as real food) ingredients. It was tough, but I struggled through the testing . . .
7 oz. fresh-squeezed lime juice (about 6 limes)
2 oz. fresh-squeezed orange juice (1 orange)
2 oz. tequila
2 oz. triple sec or cointreau
1 T. honey
1 cup crushed ice
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend just until mixed. Serve in a glass rimmed with a cut lime and sea salt. I might even add a drop of Lime or Citrus Fresh Essential Oil to bump up the citrus flavor.
You could also add some other fresh fruit like strawberries for a strawberry margarita. Yum!
What is your favorite margarita?
