lime margaritas

easy lime margarita recipe

I have to get something off my chest. I’m a total margarita snob.

There, I said it. And I feel better already. It’s taken me 3+ years to admit that, but I couldn’t lead you on anymore. The truth is, I only drink margaritas made with fresh ingredients – and I am totally that girl at the bar who asks what’s in the cocktails. Making fresh margaritas is so easy – why use the syrupy-sweet, preservative-filled mix? Believe me, I’ve had enough margaritas to know that there is a difference. I also prefer my margaritas without triple sec. Or salt. High maintenance, I know.

These Lime Margaritas are one of my favorite cocktails to whip up at home. This recipe calls for 3 simple ingredients, which you likely already have: limes, agave, and tequila. It’s like limeade in a cup. Er… spiked limeade, I guess. Either way. Have a Lime Margarita tonight and join the snobby girls cocktail club. Once you’re in, you won’t go back.
