I must give credit for this delicious drink to my cousin, Dan, who creates incredible cocktails, and this is pretty much the exact recipe he gave me.
First things first, frozen margaritas taste NOTHING like a real margarita. Making a margarita is simple, but fresh ingredients are KEY. Fresh lime juice instead of Roses bottled, homemade simple syrup instead of triple sec make a WORLD of difference. I have never liked salt on my margaritas so I didn't include it in the recipe. If you like salt, feel free to salt your rim, but know I never will!
I will say that its a strong drink, and the flavor is very intense. My boyfriend did not like the taste as much as I did, but I have always enjoyed margaritas, and he doesn't really. So make sure you like them before you squeeze those limes.
Fyi a typical shot glass is one ounce. Also after the recipe, I put how to make homemade sugar syrup, which is super easy and cheap.
The Goods: Makes 1 average martini glass serving
