SIMPLE 4 INGREDIENT MARGARITAS
4 Ingredients To A Delicious Margarita
This is a very simple, barely-even-need-a-recipe kind of recipe! Just 4 ingredients and you are set for a party! My kind of recipe! I’ve been making and sharing this recipe for years, since my boys were babies as a matter of fact, thanks to Allison, a long time friend from my MOPS days.
In the summer I keep the ingredients on hand, it’s quick and simple for those times when you need a quick drink if someone drops by.
Pour 1 cup of Rose’s Sweetened Lime Juice, 1 cup Tequila and drum roll please….the SECRET INGREDIENT…1 cup of (unfiltered) apple juice into a pitcher, add ½ cup Triple Sec (or Grand Marnier) and stir. That’s it! Serve over ice with a salted rim (if desired) and a squeeze of lime.
WARNING | These are strong! Easily doubled or tripled for larger crowds.
Please, please always drink responsibly.
TIP | When salting the rim, don’t put the ice in first (like I tend to do). Rub your lime wedge around the rim of the glass, then dip your glass (upside down) in your salt, then put your ice in. Beautiful every time.
While you are at it, throw together a quick appetizer or charcuterie board. So easy to assemble, it doesn’t need to be fancy. I bought some olives, cherries, Marcona almonds, cheeses and crackers, tossed in some strawberries and there you have it! Delicious, colorful and nutritious!
FROZEN MARGARITA SLUSHY
Freezing your cocktail seems to be the rage, so I thought I’d get in on it. Simply mix together your margarita ingredients well, place in a freezer friendly container and freeze. I used my small mixing bowl since it has a lid. WARNING, these are even stronger since you aren’t pouring them “on the rocks”. If you make these into slushies, you may want to add ice to water them down a bit.
When ready to serve, freeze your glasses for 15 minutes or more if desired and rim your glass with flaky salt, add a scoop of crushed ice and and scoop using a medium scoop the slushy margarita mixture into the frosty glass. Garnish with a slice of lime.
Perfect for Cinco de Mayo, Father’s Day or just a hot summer day, ah heck, great for any time of year.
