On The Border House Margarita Recipe

For a Single Margarita
 
Salt the rim of a 12 oz. glass.  Fill with cubed ice.
In a shaker, combine…
1 ½ oz. Tequila (the better the Tequila, the better your ‘rita will be)
½ oz. Triple Sec
4 oz. Sweet & Sour
Stir together (or cap the shaker, and shake ingredients), and pour over ice.  Garnish with a fresh lime wedge.  If you prefer your margarita frozen, you can pour all the ingredients – including the ice – into your blender, and blend it to a slushy consistency.
 
For a Pitcher of Margaritas (yields approx 4 ‘ritas)
 
Fill a pitcher with cubed ice.
In your blender, or other container, combine …
6 oz. Tequila
2 oz. Triple Sec
16 oz. Sweet & Sour
Blend ingredients together and pour over ice in pitcher.  If you prefer frozen margaritas, put all the ingredients – including the ice – into your blender, and blend it to a slushy consistency.  Serve in salted-rim glasses, with lime garnishes.
 
 
Fun ‘Rita Hint:  Give your margaritas an extra kick by adding fresh fruit purees (strawberry, mango, pineapple),  fruit juices, or even topping them off with your favorite liqueur.
