Instructions

If making for a crowd (13, 18, or 24 servings)

  • In 2-quart pitcher, combine all ingredients, except the ice. Keep the margarita mixture refrigerated until ready to serve.
  • When ready to serve, rim the glasses with salt (if desired) and fill each with ice.
  • Fill a cocktail shaker ¾ of the way with ice. Add enough prepared margarita mixture to the top of the ice. Cover tightly and shake vigorously 10-15 seconds. Pour into prepared glasses and serve immediately. Drain excess water from the shaker. Repeat for the additional servings, adding more ice as needed.
  • Garnish with a lime wedge or wheel.
  • Enjoy!

For Individual Servings:

  • See above if salting the rim of the glass.
  • Fill the shaker about halfway with ice and add all other ingredients. Shake vigorously 10-15 seconds.
  • Immediately pour into the prepared glass and garnish with a lime wedge or wheel.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

Note – These margaritas are best made within 8 hours of serving.
Note - The recipe can be easily doubled.
Note - If you want salted glass rims: Cover the bottom of a small plate with margarita salt. Rub the rims of the glasses with a lime wedge, dip the rims in the margarita salt, and set the glasses upright to dry a tad before filling with ice.
Note - These Margaritas are not very sweet. If you would like them sweeter, just add more agave syrup to taste.
Important Note :) - It's important to shake the margaritas before serving. Add 2-4 servings to a shaker with ice right before serving and repeat for each serving. Makes all the difference. Your guests will thank you!
