It’s Cinco de Mayo…a great excuse for having a margarita! Using fresh lime juice is much better than the sugary stuff already made. Be careful, these will sneak up on you!


1 part tequila
1/2 part fresh squeezed lime juice
1 part simple syrup, see below
1/2 part Cointreau or triple sec

Combine all ingredients with crushed ice in a shaker.  Shake and serve in a salt-rimmed glass!

For simple syrup
Mix equal parts of sugar and water in a saucepan and heat until sugar dissolves.  Let cool.

If making a big batch of margaritas, try adding a corona beer.

1 cup tequila
1/2 cup lime
1 cup simple sugar
1/2 cup Cointreau or triple sec
1 beer
