You all know that I love a good glass of vino on occasion, but with summer here and lots of grilling happening sometimes a refreshing margarita just hits the spot. I don’t like how restaurants add a lot of extra sugar and calories that aren’t necessary, so I have a go-to, at-home, 3-ingredient recipe that I love and stick with.
Beware: if you are used to super sweet margaritas, you may want to add a little more lime juice or even throw in some blended watermelon.
Adapted from http://www.averiecooks.com/
1 to 1 1/2 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
2 oz. Water
1 to 2 oz. Tequila
1 tbsp. Agave Nectar (or to taste)
- Over a large cup, squeeze the limes (approx. 2 medium/large ripe limes).
- Add the water, tequila, and agave. Stir. Taste to see if any changes need to be made.
- Add ice generously, and stir or shake. (You can complete this recipe in a shaker.)
- Serve immediately.
This would go perfectly with some spicy fish tacos!
