Two-Minute Margarita

Two Minute Margarita


Author note: This recipe is a combination of several margarita recipes that I’ve used over the years. When there is time, I juice the limes myself, but in most instances, I use store-bought fresh limeade from Trader Joe’s (or a grocer who has fresh limeade in the refrigerated section). For this recipe, seek out the freshest store-bought limeade and rid yourself of the unnecessary packaged premade margarita mix.¬†It doesn’t take long to whip up this margarita; in fact, it takes about 2¬†minutes.

3 ice cubes (plus more for the individual drink)

2 ounces tequila

1/2 ounce orange liquor

3 ounces fresh limeade

1/2 teaspoon agave syrup

squeeze of lime juice

pinch of salt

lime slices

  1. Place the ice cubes into a cocktail shaker (or plastic cup as I do), and pour the tequila and orange liquor over the ice. Shake or stir to chill.
  2. Pour the chilled liquor in a glass filled halfway with ice.
  3. Add the limeade, agave, lime juice and salt into the glass. Stir well.
  4. Finish with a slice of lime and serve.
