1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (8-12 limes)
For each margarita:
2 ounces homemade margarita mix
2 ounces silver tequila
1 ounce orange liqueur
1 tsp agave nectar (optional)
lime wedges/slices for garnish (optional)
To make the margarita mix; heat water and sugar in a small sauce pan until completely dissolved and the water is clear. Let cool. Pour into a pitcher with lime juice. Leftovers will keep 7-10 days in a jar in the fridge.
To make margaritas, combine 2 ounces mix, 2 ounces tequila, 1 ounce orange liqueur, and a teaspoon of agave nectar if you like. Shake well, strain into ice filled margarita glass. Garnish with lime slices.
To make frozen margaritas, freeze the lime mix into ice cubes. Blend the ice cubes with chilled tequila and orange liqueur until uniformly slushy.
