A few summers ago I discovered that I really enjoy tequila. Or rather tequila-based cocktails. I’ve never been a shots kind of a girl and I don’t think my late 30’s, with two small children, is the time to start.
UPDATE: I’m now 41 and it turns out I don’t mind a tequila shot…
And since I like the flavor of limes so much it makes sense that I would love a good margarita. About 6 months ago I asked my Facebook followers for their favorite margarita recipes. They were varied, to say the least. So I decided I would try several of them and see which ones I like the best. It was hard work, you guys. But these are the kinds of things I do for you. Turns out I found the best frozen margarita pitcher recipe. Ever.
I’m no tequila expert but there are some that are better than others. Choose a brand that you like the flavor of to ensure that you like the margaritas. While some people may say that it’s ok to use cheap tequila in mixed drinks, I’m not in that camp. Don’t put yourself in debt over the tequila. But choose a nice one. I made a traditional margarita with triple sec, lime juice, tequila and agave. It was just ok. And you will notice there is no salt in these photos because I don’t like it anywhere near my margaritas. You do what you need to do. Several of the recipes that I had been given called for beer. It didn’t really do anything for them. And one called for Trader Joe’s margarita mix. I was disappointed.
I Found the Best Frozen Margarita Recipe!
I decided since it would be really lush-y to make all these margaritas for myself, I would do it during a family barbecue. My mom and my sister and I tried all of these and there was no clear winner. Then my sister says, oh hey, let me make you the kind I drink. And it was this limeade frozen margarita recipe. And oh my gosh. It was, by far, the best one. And it was frozen! I don’t usually enjoy frozen cocktails but for this I will make an exception.SO good! And since you make them by the pitcher, this frozen limeade margarita recipe is great for parties or if you just don’t want to have to make your cocktails one at a time. So thank you, sister, for sharing this with me. She says she didn’t make it up and that it is all over the online recipe world. So we do not take credit for creating this recipe. Just drinking it and letting you know that it is so very tasty.
