When I lived in California, I had a very happy lime tree in my backyard that produced hundreds of limes every season. It was great to have a them on hand and I used them in all sorts of recipes. One of my favorites is this Margarita recipe. I must warn you. Once you have a Margarita made with fresh lime juice, you’ll never want to drink store-bought mix again!
This is just a small batch of the bounty I had one summer!
1 cup gold tequila
3/4 cup Triple Sec
3/4 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
2 tablespoons sugar
6 cups crushed ice
lime wedges, salt, or sugar for garnish
Stir tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and 2 tablespoons sugar in a pitcher. Add ice. Let stand for 10 minutes. Pour into glasses and garnish with lime wedges. Apply coarse salt or sugar the rim of the Margarita glasses if that’s your thing!
