3 Margaritas with salt rim and lime slice


If, like me, it determines you ill reflecting how much you’ve spent on concoctions in your lifetime, it’s time to get onto the band wagon of performing margaritas at home! Ridiculously easy, it’s a party starter that’s fresh and zingy with just enough sweet, and certainly with a good kicking of booze that’s going to get you sounding in no time!

What goes in Margaritas

Here’s what you need – it’s easy as 1-2-3 😛 TAGEND

1 persona Cointreau( or other triple sec) 2 constituents lime liquid 3 parts tequila

( With “parts” being anything from a shot glass, a tablespoon, a pot or a bottle- simply use the same measuring vehicle for each part !)

No sugar! Cointreau is sweet fairly as it is- and proper margaritas are meant to be fresh and zingy , not crazy dessert!

What’s Triple Sec?

Triple Sec is an orange spiced alcoholic syrup. The most well known brand is Cointreau which is obligated in France. Triple Sec symbols vary in sweetness and intensity/ caliber of orange smell. Cointreau is less sweet than most, with a better orange flavour.

Scrawny Margaritas

Skinny Margaritas are all the rage nowadays- and compared to the outrageously sugary margaritas that some places dish, they are much lower in calories. It’s made with orange liquid and agave syrup instead of Cointreau.

But here’s what they don’t tell you- Skinny Margaritas exclusively have 15 calories less than classic margaritas procreated properly with no computed sugar.

So, here’s what you need for the Skinny version- and I’ve includes the quantities in the recipe placard below. It’s a yummy alternative, but I personally don’t make it as a lower cal alternative of classic Margaritas!

What goes into Skinny Margaritas

Both normal and skinny Margaritas can be served in any type of glass, but for the sake of distinguishing between them, here is the Skinny version in a tumbler, served with ice.

When to serve Margaritas- and what to serve it with!

Margaritas are a classic glas of option for parties and all things Mexican! A backyard BBQ with friends, Friday night Nachos, a Sunday Mexican fiesta!

Kick off “states parties ” with Margaritas, chips and plunge- everybody’s favourite Guacamole or my atrocious Pig-Out-Salsa that everyone vanishes bonkers over.

They’re dangerously drinkable- fresh and zingy rather than ridiculously sweet which means you don’t get sugared out, you are able to literally suck them all darknes. You can’t savor the alcohol but they are pretty darn potent!

Plus, they’re easy to acquire in large-scale batch quantities- only mix up a pitcher and keep it in the refrigerator to pour on demand. Now that’s a way to keep the party get !!- Nagi x

1. Triple sec is an orange spiced liquid. The most popular brand is Cointreau.

2. Agave nectar is a natural sweetener at relatively low calories than carbohydrate and other liquid sugared things like sugar( it has about half the calories or honey ). Nowadays is also available in massive supermarkets( Australia: Coles/ Woolies/ Harris ).

3. Big batch- move in pitcher and keep in the fridge. Don’t exploit sparkler- they will defrosted and diluted the tone. Or use non-melting ice options like reusable ice cubes( artificial ice cubes ).
