Salutations! Around here, the summer season is also known as margarita season. As the weather starts to warm, Honey starts asking “wanna make margaritas?” A cold margarita on a hot, steamy summer afternoon has the power to make all things right in the world–a golden glass of magic! Grin.
One of my favorite parts about making margaritas is Honey likes to be in charge of the whole production, from the liquor store to the blender. This recipe has a limeade base, smooth texture, and a sweet, yet tart flavor. It was handed down to my husband from my dad, so I guess you could say we have an heirloom margarita recipe in the family.
- 6 ounces frozen limeade mix
- 3/4 cup tequila (we keep ours in the freezer so it’s always cold)
- 1/4 cup triple sec
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- fruit – optional (we’ve added fresh strawberries, mangos, and pineapples – whatever you like)
Fill a large blender (about 40 ounces) with ice. Add the first four ingredients and, if inclined, your choice of fruit. Blend well.
Makes one large pitcher.
We enjoyed one round inside and then headed out to the back garden for a second round to go along with our “junk” dinner. Once in a blue moon we have “junk” dinner and last night nachos with melty cheese, black beans, fresh jalapenos, and pico de gallo was the perfect pair with a margarita or two.
Please drink responsibly.
