This is a classic margarita recipe, with a delicious blend of tequila, lime, and orange liqueur. If you prefer your margaritas sweeter, add 1 tablespoon super fine sugar. If you love margaritas, you should also check out the lesser known precursor, the sidecar.
For a lemon margarita, simply replace the lime juice with lemon juice.
The tequila. We like to use Camarena silver tequila.
