A nice thing about the margarita basket idea is that you can vary it to fit your budget. For example you could skip the squeezer and add more limes, vary the types of tequila and orange liquor or skip the liquor and put in margarita glasses, coarse salt, a lime squeezer and some limes.
Be sure to include your favorite margarita recipe. Joan’s husband, Don, is the hit of the party when he makes his favorite recipe – here it is!
Don’s Famous Margaritas
- 4 ozs. of your favorite tequila
- 2 ozs. triple sec or other orange liquor
- 3 ozs. fresh squeezed lime juice (only fresh squeezed – nothing else works!)
- 6 ozs. apple juice (this is the secret ingredient that makes these margaritas the perfect blend of sweet and sour.)
Stir everything together in a pitcher and pour into a salt rimmed glass full of ice. Serves two!
