Background & History

The perfect Margarita in my humble opinion. Inspired by my Mom's recipe which was was always made by the pitcher, never the glass, and was done by eye / taste alone.

Notes & Review

Feel free to use regular ice or to serve it up in a coupe or margarita glass. Also, the quality of lime juice can make or break this drink. Use fresh limes, and always taste before serving, some limes are more sour or sweet than others. A strong, crisp, classic summer cocktail.
