This recipe is too good not to share. I have been making these for years and wanted to pass it on. These margarita's on the rocks are the best I have ever had. To make them, it is equal parts for measurements. I normally use a double shot glass for measuring. For example, 1.5 means 1 and a half pour in my double shot glass. 3/4 means three quarters full in my double shot glass. You can use any measurement cup, as long as you keep the units consistent. Pour into something you can shake up.
Pour contents into a cocktail shaker or pitcher with a little ice. Shake up and serve over ice. Salt optional!
Makes 2 drinks (fits perfect into a cocktail shaker)
1.5- Tequila- silver, high quality
3/4- Triple Sec, Orange Liquor, or high quality Agave Nectar
3/4- lime juice, fresh squeezed
2- simple syrup
Double recipe, Makes 4 drinks
3- Tequila- silver, high quality
1.5- Triple Sec, Orange Liquor, or high quality Agave Nectar
1.5- lime juice, fresh squeezed
4- simple syrup
Make a pitcher (use exact measurement here)
1 1/3 cup- Tequila- silver, high quality
2/3 cup- Triple Sec, Orange Liquor, or high quality Agave Nectar
2/3 cup- lime juice, fresh squeezed
1 5/6 cup- simple syrup
To make simple syrup, make equal parts of water to sugar. 1.5 cups of boiling water to 1.5 cups of sugar. Stir constantly until fully dissolved (about 2-3 minutes) and chill. 1.5 cups of simple syrup will make 2+ drinks. 2 cups will make 4+ drinks.
I use Jose Quervo silver 1800 tequila and this Agave nectar pictured below. Any high quality silver tequila will work well.
