Homemade Margaritas in 15 minutes or Less!

I simply decided yesterday was Margarita Wednesday!  We had a tons of limes, lemons, and clementine oranges in the fridge, so we went for it! 



Homemade Margarita Mix

6 limes
2 lemons
2 clementine oranges (any orange will do) 

Simple Syrup 

1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar

Squeeze limes, lemons, and oranges into one container.  

Pour water and sugar together in a sauce pan over medium/ high heat, and let the mixture come to a boil. Make sure to stir well, then remove from heat.  Place in a separate container to let the mixture cool.  I even pop it into the freezer to let it cool off.  The faster this stuff cools down, the faster we can make a margarita!  

I like to keep the simple syrup and the lime/ lemon mixture separate.  That way I can control the tart to sweet ratio. 

Perfect Margarita

2 oz.  100 Anos tequila
2 oz.  Lemon/Lime mixture
2 oz.  Simple Syrup 
1/2 oz. Triple Sec 
1 cup ice

Shakey shakey, and Drinky drinky!
