Mama’s Classic Margarita Recipe
With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend I thought it would be fun to share a fun cocktail recipe. This classic margarita recipe comes from mom, Nicole. When my family gets together for special occasions, my mom whips up a mean margarita. I’m sure most of you moms out there could use a drink this weekend!
This recipe uses homemade simple syrup which is surprisingly easy to make. Take one cup of white sugar and one cup of water and bring them to a boil in a sauce pan. Once boiling, remove from the heat and let it cool completely.
Next, squeeze from fresh lime juice and blend it with tequila, triple sec, ice cubes and the simple syrup. You can experiment with the amount of lime juice and ice. Start with about one ounce of lime juice and 5 ice cubes per drink and add more to suit your taste.
Serve your margaritas in glasses rimmed with crushed sea salt and garnish with fresh lime slices.
This classic margarita recipe is very tasty but it does pack a punch, so always remember to drink responsibly!
The full recipe is posted below. Check out this video I made of the process:
