Classic Margaritas

Lime Margarita with Tequila

This is a family recipe. This is the perfect margarita. You must have fresh limes, and if you are feeling fancy you can sub out Tattersall Orange Crema or Grand Marnier for the Cointreau or simple syrup. You can also use agave nectar instead of simple syrup.  If you are feeling fancier check out my Watermelon margarita recipe. Feeling spicy? Slice some fresh jalapeño into the drink and garnish with some cilantro.
