Real Margaritas

  • 1 lime, halved
  • Salt
  • ½ cup freshly squeezed lime juice (5 limes)
  • 2 tbsps freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)
  • 1 cup Triple Sec
  • 1 cup white tequila
  • 2 cups ice, plus extra for serving

If you like margaritas served in a glass with salt, rub the outside rims of 6 glasses with a cut lime and dip each glass lightly into a plate of kosher salt.

Combine the lime juice, lemon juice, Triple Sec, tequila, and ice in a blender and puree.

Place extra ice in a cocktail shaker. Fill with margarita mix, shake well, and strain into glasses.
