Margaritas? I love Chili's but....

Postby oklahomajewel » Thu May 01, 2008 7:54 pm

I'm not an expert by any means, and pretty much novice when it comes to mixing drinks ! haha

I love the Presidente margaritas at Chili's and I know they have Presidente Brandy in them....

I LOVED TonyJ's mango margaritas at LCG last year...

so help me out, so I don't drink up TOO TOO much tequila during the try and error process, but what is a really good , smooth margarita 'recipe'.

Thanks ! :tipsy:
Some things are way over my head !! ...but it keeps me looking UP!

Hi Julie,

On the rocks

1 part Sauza Tres Generaciones Plata
1 part Hiram Walker Triple Sec
2 parts freshly squeezed lime juice

Shake with ice and pour into a margarita glass

But for summer camping, frozen made with a mix is pretty good :D

Here is a very simple recipe for the blender...

1-small can of MinuteMaid frozen concentrated limeade.

Dump that in the blender, then fill the empty limeade can with Tequila, and dump that in. Then, half fill the can with either Triple Sec or Grand Marinier, and dump that in.

Top off the blender with ice, and blend until smooth.

When backpacking, we used to make them with Tequila and Tang, but I wouldn't recommend it. :thumbdown:

My only mod to that is a full instead of a half can of Triple Sec.

But they taste better when mixed with a garbage disposal!

And once again, Bob was my aunt, not my uncle!
Still graced with two eyes and ten fingers (due in no small part to luck!).

Just when you think a problem is solved, an uglier result replaces it.

Now, Try one blender full of each of these recipe's, all at the same sitting and then you probably will actually see Aunt Bob !!!

I make up a mix using frozen limeade and frozen lemonade, only mixing enough water in to get the taste that I like (on the tart side).

For one margarita I use 2 oz of good quality tequila, 1 oz of Grand Marnier (or Triple Sec), 1 fresh squeezed lime and anywhere from 1/2 cup or more of the mix. I like mine shaken with ice. I sort of do mine to taste, just keep shtasting spuntil sheems it spright! :lol: :R

Mel prefers margaritas on the rocks over frozen ones. If they have them, she'll get a Mexican Martini with Herradura or Patron tequila, there are a few places in town that serve them.

I found a recipe online for the Mexican Martini at Trudy's, a TexMex place in Austin. You can also get them at PF Changs. Yeah, a Mexican Martini at a Chinese restaurant? The reason is because the chain was started in Austin.

Wow, olives and olive juice in a margarita! How wierd, unusual and interesting at the same time! I'll have to try it, at least once. :lol: And I just adore Patron! That has to be one of my favorite tequilas! I also prefer mine on the rocks. Something about the frozen ones seems a little too foofy to me. :lol: Then again I am used to having tequila straight up with a little salt and lime. :R Of course, as age has caught up with me, I haven't been able to do that in quite a while, so on the rocks, mixed in with some other yummy liquid, will have to suffice. I don't do hangovers as well as I used to when I was in my twenties. :lol: And we all know how tequila can catch up to you like a freight train out of nowhere! You keep on sipping until that train comes barreling at you..... :?

I think that train hit me a couple of times. I didn't even hear the whistle blow.
