Nearly every Friday evening during late spring and summer, I make margaritas.
I admit it. I do.
It just seems to go along with dinner on Fridays, plus I like to be all 1950s-ish and have a cocktail ready for my hard-working man when he comes home.
I'm an on-the-rocks kind of girl, but you can make these with crushed ice if that's your thing. Just replace some of the water with crushed ice-there ya go! These margaritas are so easy to make, and they don't use bottled margarita mix. Who needs that? (Be gone already, high fructose corn syrup!)
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (this usually works out to be 4 limes for me)
2 cups filtered water
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup good Tequila
1/4 cup Cointreau (or Grand Marnier)
Stir together the lime juice and filtered water; add sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add Tequila and Cointreau and stir well. Serve cold & over ice.
This makes about 4 margaritas--perfect small batch. :)
