  • 1/2 cup lime juice freshly squeezed (5 - 6 limes)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice freshly squeezed (about 1 lemon)
  • 1 cup Triple Sec
  • 1 cup white tequila
  • 2 cups ice
  • Lime wedges and kosher salt for garnish


  • To begin, rub the outside rim of your glasses with a lime wedge. Dip each glass into a plate of kosher salt.
  • In a bowl with a spout, combine the lime juice, lemon juice, Triple Sec, and tequila. Pour this margarita mix into a cocktail shaker filled with ice*, shake well, and strain into prepared margarita glasses with ice.


Frozen margaritas can be made by adding all of the margarita mix, plus two cups of ice to a blender. Puree until smooth.
