My Favorite Margarita Recipe

Happy Cinco de Mayo! My friends would be the first to tell you that today is hands down my favorite minor holiday. As a lover of bright colors, Mexican food, and of course, margaritas that pretty much comes as a no brainer. While I wish all my girlfriends and I had reservations at one of our favorite local Mexican restaurants to catch up over queso and cheers oversized margaritas, I’ll still be making the most of the occasion with takeout from Taco Mama or La Paz and the homemade margaritas I’ve been able to perfect during quarantine.


I am a bit embarrassed to admit that my roommate and I have already gone through a bottle of tequila over the past eight weeks, but between Mexican mules (like a Moscow mule but with tequila) and margaritas, I really shouldn’t be all that surprised. I’ve become the designated bartender between the two of us, and I don’t know if I should be embarrassed or proud at how good I’ve become at eyeballing the quantities of ingredients in our favorite drinks. With that said, I did try to come up with proper ratios to share with you here since I know it can be tricky to guestimate. But hey, if you’ve had a rough week/day add an extra splash of tequila, I’m not judging! 


To make our favorite margs, you’ll need:

Tequila of your choice
Tres Agaves Margarita Mix (I buy mine at Publix)
Lime La Croix (or something similar)
Limes

 

In honor of my love of a theme, I couldn’t just make these directly in the cup and decided instead to utilize my  Amanda Lindroth pitcher and some festive cups we have. I’ll be writing out the recipe as it pertains to a single serving, but don’t be afraid to make enough for a second since as far as margaritas go, these taste light and refreshing. 

1.    Start by pouring one shot of tequila into your glass or pitcher filled with ice.
2.    Add two shots of Tres Agaves Margarita Mix (you can adjust this according to your taste, but I’ve found this to be my sweet spot).
3.    Cut up a small lime and squeeze two wedges into the drink. I usually toss one of the squeezed wedges into the drink.
4.    Top with lime La Croix, stir, and enjoy.

Nothing too groundbreaking, but undoubtedly delicious! I wish I could cheers with y’all in person to celebrate. Below I've included some cute items that would take my at-home fiesta set-up to the next level:
