Classic Margarita Mix

A three-ingredient Margarita Mix that isn't full of corn syrup!

Once upon a time, someone told me that “everyone likes Margaritas.” I believed that until I tried one for the first time and had to painfully choke it down. Could it have been because I was newly 21 and not used to the taste of alcohol? Or could it have been because I ordered a Frozen Peacherita from some Mexican Restaurant that probably poured flavored corn syrup and tequila into a slushy machine and called it a day? I’m pretty positive thinking it’s the latter.

Through trial and error over the years, I’ve figured out that most everyone likes a good Margarita. I realized very quickly that frozen Margaritas are not for me – nor are syrupy sweet mixes. One day (during my Paleo phase), I stumbled across Danielle Walker’s recipe for Paleo Margaritas and I realized it had never occurred to me to make my own Margaritas… *lightbulb*

Three Easy Ingredients for Margarita Mix

I began exploring what goes into a Margarita and what has devolved into the pre-packaged mixes – what makes up a Margarita that everyone most people like? Through my exploring, I found Alton Brown’s recipe for Perfect Margaritas and tried his method several times with great results… however, I do not always want to take the time to muddle my limes and oranges for five minutes. Ain’t nobody got time for that. So despite how fabulous his recipe is (I recommend watching that video!), I continued to simmer down my recipe into something a bit more simple.

So without further ado, I give you my Margarita recipe – I hope you love it!

    Three simple ingredients to make a deliciously easy Margarita mix
Making the Margarita
  1. Spread a thin layer of salt across a small plate.
  2. Dip the rim of the glass(s) very gently into the juice mixture, lift out of the juice and then hold the glass upside down for 10 seconds.
  3. Dredge the rim of the glass(s) through the salt until coated and then return to its upright position.
  4. Add the tequila and a handful of ice to the mix and shake vigorously for about 15 seconds.
  5. Pour your concoction through a straining device and into your salted glass(s) and garnish with a lime wheel. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

If you do not own a cocktail shaker, don't race out and buy one! You can very easily use a Mason Jar as a shaker. Just secure the lid tightly and shake well! Once adequately combined, remove the band and then use the lid of the Mason Jar as a straining device by sliding it only slightly off center and pouring the liquid out of the opening. See? Easy!
