One Tequila, Two Tequila, Three Tequila, Floor…..

I’m a Texas girl through and through and if there is one thing I love it’s a good margarita. Now when I say a “Good” margarita what I mean is it’s got to have 100% blue agave tequila, for example I use Hornitos Silver Tequila. I’ve got to have a good splash of Grand Marnier, but most importantly I want real juice in my Margaritas not fake margarita mix. I know that many people have been on a “juicing” trend lately and I will confess I bought a juicer too, but what I use my juicer for is making some AMAZING cocktails. Now my margaritas are not just lime juice because I think straight lime juice is too bitter. I do a combination of equal parts orange and lime juice and just a splash of lemon juice to have a well-rounded mix. To keep it traditional Mexican I use Agave nectar to sweeten the margarita, which also will classify these as “Skinny” Margaritas. What girl doesn’t love that!

 

This recipe is makes margaritas for a thirsty crowd.

 

Mel’s Top Shelf “Skinny” Margaritas

 

3 Cups Fresh Lime Juice

3 Cups Fresh Orange Juice

½ cup Fresh Lemon Juice

8 cups of Water

¾ Cup Agave Nectar

5 Cups 100% Blue Agave Tequila (Such As Hornitos)

2 Cups Grand Marnier

 

Directions: 

Mix together all the juices, water and agave nectar in a large pitcher. Then divide the mix between two large pitchers and add in the tequila and Grand Marnier. Stir well to combine and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Serve on the rocks with salt.

If you happen to have an ice cream machine, these make excellent frozen margaritas. Just fill the bowl of the ice cream maker ¾ of the way and let it go for about 30 minutes or until a thick slush has formed. Then serve and enjoy!

Although I do some baking, I don't consider myself a baker as I can't stand having to measure. When it comes to cooking my philosophy is add a bit of this, a dash of that, a splash of something doesn't hurt, never forget some type of pepper and always add at least one clove of garlic. Thanks for stopping by my Spicy Texas Kitchen and I hope to see you again!!! Melody
