Margaritas are probably one of my favorite cocktails. Something about them (not just the tequila, guys) instantly puts me in a relaxed/vacation/beach-y mode. Never a bad thing. The only thing that IS bad about them is that usually they are total calorie bombs…like Big Mac with fries status. And the mixers are full of sugar, weird color additives and who knows what else. I personally like a fresher margarita. Plus, who wants to stop at one? With these, you don’t have to (until you do).
- juice of 4 limes
- a little over a cup of light lemonade (like Minute Maid or TJ’s)
- 3 shots tequila (I like silver, but use whatever is your favorite)
- lime garnish
* Dump it all into your cocktail shaker, and have at it. Dip the rim of a glass in lime juice, and then press into salt (on a plate). Pour over ice, and enjoy free of guilt. This makes TWO ‘ritas, so share with a friend…or not! ;)
