This is probably the fourth or fifth recipe for classic Margaritas that I have tried over the years. I am on a quest for the perfect Margaritas…..
These are not a typical frozen Margaritas, most recipes usually call for more ice than this one. Oh, one more thing…..these babies are very strong! They are very good, but I would like to try them again with Cabo Wabo and see if that makes a difference. I ran out of the Cabo Wabo, so I used Jose Cuervo Silver. I don’t care how good Patron might be, I will not be spending $100 for a bottle of tequila!!
I do not like sweet & sour mix, I prefer to use lime juice and pure ingredients. You may have noticed that they are white and not neon green from food colorings…..
Margaritas seemed like the perfect way to kick off Hispanic Heritage Month, which starts today. I don’t know if it is because I grew up in Southern California, but Mexican food has always been one of my favorites! I have also chosen Spanish and Mexican food as the inspiration for this month’s Cooking with Astrology, so it all flows together very nicely.
If you have never made a margarita before and you are not sure how to get the salt to stick to the rim of the glass…..
When you are finished squeezing the juice out of the limes, set aside the rind to use on the edge of the glass. If you do not need or want to finish all of the margaritas in the blender, just pour them into a ziploc freezer bag and put it in the freezer for another time…..
Alcohol does not freeze, so they will remain slushy and more like a true frozen margarita. This is also a great way to make them ahead of time for a party!!
