Now that summer is quickly approaching, we really enjoy entertaining and having guests over for any occasion. To accompany a beautiful outdoor bbq or event, we love to prepare our amazing margarita mix recipe. Fresh craft cocktails and simple recipes are what makes us happiest when entertaining.
Most margarita mixes are filled with chemicals and preservatives that give an artificial flavor and unwanted taste. We much prefer the natural alternative and true flavors with our amazing homemade margarita mix. It creates a totally killer margarita that won’t let you down. Its cheap to make and easy as well.
This recipe does have sugar and while you can substitute other natural ingredients we have found the recipe below makes the most authentic type of margarita. Truly delicious!!
To make a margarita with this margarita mix recipe, just take a glass with a salted rim (or not), fill with ice, pour 1 shot of tequila- approximately 2 ounces, half a shot of triple sec, and then fill the rest of the glass with the mix. Stir the drink, toss in a lime slice and there you have the most killer authentic margarita ever! Once you have tried this mix, you will never want to go back to store bought again, plus its super simple!
