A few years ago I threw a really big Cinco de Mayo party, and silly me did not think to make a Pitcher of Margaritas. Crazy, right? So there I was all night squeezing limes, and measuring out alcohol. I will never make that mistake again!! Not when you can do a little bit of prep, and keep the margaritas flowing for at least part of the night…..
If you’re really smart you will serve your Pitcher of Margaritas with small glasses, and they will last longer, LOL
I decided to use traditional glasses with my margaritas, so they look like margaritas…..
If I had used those red party cups, it just wouldn’t have had the same effect…..
Pour the tequila, liqueur, and lime juice into a half gallon pitcher.
Add ice to the pitcher, and stir to combine.
Rub glasses with lime juice. I use the lime rinds that are left over after I squeeze all of the juice out…..
and dip in margarita salt…..
These babies will make your next fiesta the talk of the town, at least for those that remember it…they are pretty strong. 😉
- While I was doing my research on the perfect pitcher of margaritas, I found myself on the Jose Cuervo website. Did you know that simple syrup is not in the official recipe?
- These margaritas are quite tart, but do not have the added sugar/calories of the type that we have all gotten used to. I decided to go ahead and eliminate the sugar rush.
- Test your margaritas before you serve them. If they seem too tart for your tastes, add 1/2 to 1 cup of simple syrup.
If you would prefer a frozen margaritas, not by the pitcher, check these out:
Frozen Watermelon Margaritas…my favorite 🙂
Yummy Frozen Peach Margaritas
There are even more flavors, just type Margaritas in the Search Bar and they will all come up. 😉
As always, drink responsibly and DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!!
