Happy Cinco de Mayo! To celebrate here is the recipe for one of my favorite beverages. We acquired this particular recipe while running our catering company. This is a crowd pleaser and one that I like to make when making mass quantities of margaritas!
This variety is mixed and served on the rocks – not blended (I’m not partial to that). I also do not salt the rim when I drink these.
Better stock up on good Mexican tequila while you can (just kidding, but no – really – do it).
Margaritas for Cinco de Mayo
1 cans limeade
2 cans water
6 bottles tequila mix
16 ½ oz silver tequila
8 oz triple sec
2 squeezed limes
Lime wedges for garnish
Salt (optional – to rim your glass)
Mix all ingredients together in a large container. Chill until you are ready to serve. Serve over ice in your favorite glass. Salting the rim is optional – though not my preference. Garnish with a lime wedge.
YIELD = 0.68 gallons
