I use cointreau for the orange flavored liquor.

My best recipe is 2 oz each of lime and a good tequila, 3/4 oz triple sec, and a splash of fresh lemon juice (brightens up the flavor).

pre-mades all use high fructose corn syrup it seems like.


where do you guys buy your lime juice? getting it in decent quantities at grocery stores seems to be a bitch around here.

1 can (the pink lemonade can) Vodka
1 Beer

Nothing wrong with that, but you really oughta upgrade your main ingredient before you worry so much about the garnishes.

And even there, fresh lime juice is way more important than the brand of liqueur.

Why would I not use fresh lime juice? Still, triple sec is a bit too sweet for my tastes, and thus, yours

Oh and I do not wish to pay $100 for a bottle of tequila you can get for $20 in the states.

I don't drink these very often. I've only ever tried it with salt and fresh lime, sometimes with a little triple sec.

What am I missing out on?

Tequila with and orange liquor and a little lime juice is what a margarita is.

If you say so. I've just never had one served that way. Mixing lime and orange like that sounds somehow off to me. I suppose I should try it.

I haven't had one, but don't most citric fruits tend to blend together really well?

Look into this; it tastes like tequila and, in Canada at least, is cheaper then tequila of corresponding quality. It can't compete with top shelf, but it holds its own.

I dunno. I've mixed lemon and orange in lots of different drinks (and recipes) and lemon and lime, but lemon is sort of the 'neutral' in the combo. I've never mixed all three or lime and orange. I'll have to try it.
