Brunch, cocktail, Drinks
margarita, margarita mix
(about 8 limes)
(about 4 lemons)
(about 1 large orange)
1 cup of hot water mixed with 1 cup of sugar
Grand Marnier orange liqueur
margarita mix from above
Limes to garnish
When picking out lemons and limes, make sure to choose ripe fruit that are soft. If fruit is not ripe enough, it won't yield much juice.
Squeeze juice from lemons, limes, and oranges. (If you use a juicer, you will get more juice out of each fruit.)
Heat up a cup of water and stir in sugar until dissolved to get simple syrup.
Combine simple syrup and juices and mix well. Pour into a jar with a lid and refrigerate for about 2 hours to cool down.
Combine margarita mix, tequila, and Grand Marnier in a blender and pulse a few times. (You can also combine margarita mix and liquors in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously.)
Spread some coarse salt in a shallow, wide bowl.
Rub each glass rim with a lime and dip the rim into coarse salt.
Add some ice to each glass and pour margarita mixture over it. Garnish with a lime and enjoy!
