Refreshing Lime Margaritas


Perfect on a hot summer day or an evening with friends. You'll make this recipe over and over again!

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 oz tequila
  • 1/2 oz Triple Sec
  • 1 oz lime juice, fresh squeezed
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sugar
  • kosher Salt (optional)
  • lime wedge (optional)
  • crushed ice or ice cubes


If you're going to salt the glass, take your lime wedge or a bit of triple sec and rub around edge of glass. Turn upside down and press rim into salt.

For the drink- Shake the tequila, triple sec, lime juice and sugar in a shaker (or stir vigorously with a spoon) and pour over ice. Or you can blend it in a blender if you prefer it. Garnish with lime wedge and enjoy!

I liked this quick recipe and the fact that I didn't have to make simple syrup. However, I needed a bit more sweetener so I added one ounce of mango juice to the recipe. It gave it a sweeter taste and a nicer depth of flavor without adding a ton more sugar.
