Do you know how easy it is to make a margarita without purchasing a pre-made mix? All it takes is a few fresh ingredients and in less than ten minutes you will have a tasty margarita on the rocks! Or if you prefer the frozen kind, you could add all the ingredients to the blender and blend it! I have flashbacks of those 7/11 Icee drinks that would give me brainfreeze , lol! I really do prefer mine on the rocks. Well, better late than never, here is my contribution to National Margarita Day with a recipe for Three Citrus Margarita!
1 1/2 cups silver tequila
1 1/2 cups triple sec
5 to 6 key limes, plus more to wet rim of glasses
4 meyer lemons
3 mandarin oranges
1/2 cup powdered sugar (who knew?) LOL!
*Salt and chile limon powder for the rim of glass
Juice all of the citrus and set aside. Combine all of the ingredients to make the margarita in a pitcher. Mix well until sugar dissolves. Wet the rim of a margarita glass with lime juice and dip into salt/chile limon mixture. Add crushed ice and fill with margarita!!! Makes about 4 cups.
