Lose Your Shoes Margaritas



Overview

  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 8 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 additional lime, zested and cut into wedges
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 cups high quality Resposado tequila
  • 4 cups Triple Sec
  • 1/3 cup kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Stir together lime juice, lemon juice, sugar, and lime zest and let sit for a half hour or so for sugar to dissolve.
  2. When ready to serve mix juices with tequila and triple sec in a large pitcher.
  3. Pour salt onto a wide flat plate.
  4. Rub rims of Margarita or Martini glasses with lime wedges and dip in salt to coat.
  5. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, pour Margarita mixture over and shake to chill.
  6. Pour into salt-rimmed glasses and serve immediately.
  7. To serve a crowd chill the pitcher and let guests serve themselves into small glasses over ice.

Notes:

If you want an “oakier” or darker flavored margarita you can use an inexpensive Anejo tequila. Don’t use high end Anejo, it’s a waste of great tequila!
