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 !

Julie I cheat;
Jose Cuervo Mix in a bottle, Tequila
( Traditional Tequilas
Platinum Silver: pure tequila, unaged
Reposado: Aged for 6 months
Añejo: Aged a minimum of 1 year
Colección Privada de La Familia-Ultra Aged Añejo -The Private Family Reserve aged for at least three years. Very limited availability as only 1,000 cases a year are produced )
and ice then and the salted glass.


Oh; yes I like the Mix above with out the tequila ( virgin margarita ) in the summer as a refreshing drink.

We use:
3 parts Tequila
2 parts roses sweetened lime juice
1 part triple sec
blend with ice.
If you want it on the rocks I sometimes add 1 part water to tone it down a bit.

We also like to use "On the Border" Margarita bucket mix. Just open the bag, pour it in the bucket with 25 oz of tequila (or 1 750 ml bottle), mix it up and pour it over ice. Or you can put the bucket in the frezzer if you like frozen margaritas. Even comes with a packet of salt.

And.. if you don't salt the rim and it just don't quite taste right, try a shake of salt in it. rounds out the flavor and mellows the bite of the lime :thumbsup:

3:2:1 is the right mix. I just use Controy from Mexico instead of Triple Sec.
On the rocks, slushed, with or without salt, always good. I think my mother changed her name to Marguerite for reason and I can respect that and toast it often. :lol:

. . . And to think that I thought there was only one way to make a Margarita - how naive of me :oops: :oops:

Ah, the Wabo Rita. Thanks prohandyman for reminding me. I had one of those made by Sammy himself at a concert back in Fall of 97 at the House of Blues in Orlando. During an intermission, he made drinks and passed them out. I was close enough to the stage to actually get some. He even squeezed the limes himself. Good stuff.

quote: Bob's your uncle is a commonly used expression known mainly in Britain, Ireland and Commonwealth nations. It is often used immediately following a set of simple instructions and carries roughly the same meaning as the phrase "and there you have it" or "quickly"; for example, "To make a ham sandwich, simply put a piece of ham between two slices of buttered bread, and Bob's your uncle."

If you drink enough, he might become your aunt... :}

I'm told tequila and Mountain Dew make a decent margarita in a pinch... :D

I know this is a very old thread, but I'm new here. How about this margarita recipe for super easy. Large can frozen limeade, same can filled with white tequilla, one light colored beer, one sprite/7up, etc. You'll be surprised how good this is!

My favorite recipes (one shaken, one blended) have been mentioned in other posts above. Fresh lime juice is the second key ingredient.

When camping, I like a good (sipping) tequila straight up. No need for ice!
One of my favorites.

For $23.99, Costco sells a 3yr. anejo Tequila. In my opinion it rivals some of the better anejos, taking into consideration it is only $23.99 that is a deal for quality tequila. That is my tip for the day folks.

About once every other month I participate in a tequila tasting club event! Yum!

Same here. My preference is Patron reposado.

1 part Tequila (1 oz.) (3 oz.) (2 cups)
1/2 part Triple Sec (1/2 oz.) (1 1/2 oz.) (1 cup)
1/4 part Rose's Lime juice (1/4 oz.) (3/4 oz.) (1/2 cup)
1 1/2 parts Sweet and Sour mix (1 1/2 oz.) (4 1/2 oz.) (3 cups)

A glass filled with ice reduces the volume by one half.
The first set of measurements are for a 7 or 8 oz. rocks glass filled with ice and will keep the bartender hopping.
The second set are for the Red Solo Cup crowd with ice.
The third set are for a half gallon pitcher without ice.

BONUS RECIPE: I call it the "The beer Drinkers Whiskey Drink" because you get about the same volume per drink and I guarantee you will not be disappointed. aka Lynchburg Lemonade
1 part Jack Daniels
1 part Triple Sec
1 part Sweet and Sour mix
4 parts Sprite
