We're a few days shy of Cinco De Mayo and I'm celebrating by sharing my absolute favorite Margarita recipe ever. It can be made for adults, or you can nix the alcohol and keep it kid-friendly, either way, it's hands down the best margarita ever. Don't believe me, give it a shot! You will not be disappointed.
Ingredients2 oz. Sunny D or orange juice
2 oz. sour mix
1 oz. tequila
1 oz. orange liqueur
1 oz. lime juice
Salt (sea salt or kosher salt works best for rimming glasses).
Instructions for MargaritaIn your blender, add your ingredients and blend well. Pour into a salt rimmed glass and enjoy with a smile!
Instructions for Salt RimRimming your glass with salt is super easy--if you know how to do it correctly. To get the perfect salt rim, fill a shallow bowl with water, lime or lemon juice. (If you're feeling brave, combine all three for an extra sour burst of flavor). Next, fill a small dish with salt or sugar. Dip the rim of your glass into the bowl, and then quickly dip it into the bowl of salt.
Many bartenders recommend twisting the glass to get more salt on the rim, some say not to. Whether you choose to twist your glass or not is entirely up to you. For your own piece of mind, try it both ways to see which style works best for you!
This Margarita recipe is perfect for a Cinco De Mayo party, celebration or just girls-night-in. It can be made without alcohol so that the kiddos can enjoy this refreshing drink as well.
