This hand-me-down recipe from my dad is my favorite margarita recipe from scratch. Those are the best kind aren’t they? It’s super quick and easy and equally refreshing! And the best part, when made ahead of time and left to chill in the fridge they get even better. This recipe yields 12-15 servings (2-3 quarts).
Yields: 2-3 quarts (12-15 Servings)
- 2 cups gold tequila
- 1 cup triple sec
- 1 cup simple syrup*
- 2/3 cup Rose’s Lime Juice
- 1 tablespoon blue curaçao
- Sour Mix of your choice
- Mix tequila, triple sec, simple syrup, and Rose’s Lime juice in pitcher.
- Double the volume with sour mix. **
- Add in blue curaçao. You can add more than 1 tablespoon to achieve the margarita color you want.
- Shake/stir well.
- Chill for 8-12 hours to serve over ice. Freeze at least 12 hours to serve frozen.
*You can make simple syrup at home by mixing 2/3 cup corn syrup and 1/3 cup warm water. You can also purchase ones like this at Publix or other grocery stores.
**I like to choose a sour mix with less sugar in it. You can choose whichever one you want!
I would love to hear if y’all try any variations of this. I want to try a jalapeño version!
