Margarita Recipe

Summer is coming, and I couldn’t be more excited! Warmer weather, beach days, tan lines… nothing could be finer! This will be our (my husband and I’s) first summer here in Myrtle Beach, so I’m hoping to take advantage of it as much as possible. And after a long day in the sun, there is truly nothing better than a cold, refreshing margarita. So here are two recipes for at-home margaritas: regular and skinny.

These recipes are sans store-bought, sugar-laden mixes (because ew gross), and fresh ingredients are ALWAYS better. And of course, if you’re wanting to make your margarita a tad more potent, you can always add more tequila than the recipe calls for. It all depends on what kind of party you’re throwing! Hope you enjoy these two margarita recipes for summer and beyond.

Regular Margarita

2 oz. tequila
1/2 oz. orange liqueur
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice

Splash of orange juice
All-natural limeade
1 tsp agave nectar or simple syrup, to taste
Lime slices, for garnish
Coarse sea salt, for rimming the glass

1. Take a lime wedge and wet the rim of the glass. Then press the glass into a flat dish with coarse salt in it until the rim is coated to your liking.
2. Fill glass with tequila and orange liqueur. Squeeze 1/2 lime into glass.
3. Add a splash of orange juice, add your ice, and top with all-natural limeade.
