Directions for: Real Margaritas


1 lime, halved

Kosher salt

½ cup freshly squeezed lime juice (5 limes)

2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)

1 cup triple sec

1 cup white tequila

2 cups ice, plus extra for serving


1. If you like margaritas served in a glass with salt, rub the outside rims of 6 glasses with a cut lime and dip each glass lightly into a plate of kosher salt.

2. Combine the lime juice, lemon juice, Triple Sec, tequila, and ice in a blender and puree. Place extra ice in a cocktail shaker. Fill with margarita mix, shake well, and strain into glasses.
