Homemade Margarita Mix

Alex & I have been on a margarita-on-the-rocks kick for the last two weeks. And this past weekend I decided to try my hand at making my own margarita mix. Mainly because neither one of us can stand the super sugary mixes that come in your standard margarita. We're lucky to have a local Mexican restaurant near us that doesn't use it, but drinks at home is always a lot more fun for us. So, with that in mind, I got to squeezing.

This recipe is insanely easy to make...

HOMEMADE MARGARITA MIX
Here's what you need:
10 limes (or a cup of lime juice, with nothing added)
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
a wooden reamer, or a citrus press

Directions
Dissolve the sugar into hot water t. Let it cool. Be sure to add the lime juice after it's completely cooled.

Roll your limes on a cutting board, making sure to press down hard. This makes the limes juicy. Slice the limes in half. Take a bowl, your reamer and ream out the juice. This takes some time but stick with it. Once you hit a cups worth of lime juice you can stop.

Once the simple syrup has cooled you can add lime juice to it. Pour into a bottle and viola! Homemade margarita mix. As for storage, we put ours in the fridge.

As for how much to put in, we drink our margarita on the rocks. For ours, we use 2oz of tequila and 3oz of margarita mix. Keep in mind that a frozen recipe might differ. As you can see in the half empty glasses above, it's really good.


Let me know if you try it. I hope you have a great weekend!
