While a student at Georgia Tech back in . . . the day, my fraternity, Sigma Omega Beta, perfected an easy margarita mix. Here it is.
- 1 can frozen limeade
- 1-1/2 cans tequila
- 1/2 can triple sec
- 1 to 2 cans water or ice, to taste*
- 2 whole limes, washed and halved
Add the frozen limeade to a pitcher, and add the tequila, triple sec, and water, and mix well. Squeeze in the juice from the limes, and drop them in the pitcher.
Serve over ice in a salted glass.
My comments on this is that you don’t have to use top shelf tequila, but do buy a good limeade mix. Having said that, I find that Wal-Mart’s brand has a great flavor, although it’s a little more concentrated than others, so the original can is smaller, so you need to adjust the tequila and triple sec. But you can also adjust all this to suit your taste.
* If you want frozen margaritas, add only 1 can of water, then pour it into a blender full of ice and mix until slushy.
