To kick things off, since I don't really drink much these days except the occasional glass of wine or beer, I still remember with fondness a late uncle and his wife. I only saw them about 6 times in my entire life. But they were from L.A. and on one trip in the 1980's brought this great Margarita Recipe with them. So with that, I shall toast today, the Fifth of May!
Home Made Margarita Recipe
You will need Tequila (we used SILVER Label Hose Cuervo for mildness)
A good brand of Triple Sec
1 cup limeade (in frozen foods)
3 cups Sweet and Sour Base (Good brand?!)
1/2 Egg White (If afraid, leave out but we always used it)
1 cup base mix (shake before measuring so the egg white is mixed)
1/2 cup orange juice, fresh or the NOT from concentrate variety
3 jiggers Tequila
1 jigger Triple Sec
1 cup crushed ice
Put in blender. Pour in glasses rubbed with a lime and dipped in Kosher or Margarita salt.
Enjoy and stay home or have designated driver if you go out and about. Ha!! :)
This may seem like quite the investment but I have never found anybody that did not like this recipe. But remember, it's only as good as the ingredients.
