Margarita From Scratch
John Kanell @preppykitchen
1/2 cup tequila silver
1/4 cup lime juice fresh
1/4 cup orange liquor Grand Marnier or Cointreau
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
To make the simple syrup: add the sugar and water to a saucepan. Bring to a boil, remove from heat and chill. You can also buy pre-made simple syrup!
Add ice, tequila, orange liquor, lime juice, and 1/3 cup of the simple syrup to a shaker and shake!
Strain and serve in salted glasses over ice. You can add more of the simple syrup for an extra kick/sweetness if desired.
Garnish with a wedge of lime
Here are some great brands of tequila for a great margarita.
