Classic Margarita - Jug
1 Jug - Serves 10
Our recipe omits the usual Triple Sec, while doubling the tequila, which we feel gives you more tequila flavour. We like to use a strong flavoured but sipable 100% Blue agave tequila, either blanco or reposado, like Corralejo Reposado, Tapatio Blanco or Reposado, or Gran Centenario Reposado. You can also make it with mezcal, try Ilegal Mezcal Joven for a smokier taste. Use fresh squeezed lime juice and a simple sugar syrup, you can’t go wrong.
To make the sugar syrup put the sugar and water in a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer, swirl the pan to ensure all sugar crystals dissolve, simmer about 1 minute, then cool.
Making a jug of margarita
Add the tequila, lime juice and sugar syrup to the jug, stir, top up with ice.
To salt the rims of the glasses, take a squeezed lime half and rub it on the outer and inner lip of your glasses, you can make a half or full rim, as you like. Pour the seasoning salt onto a saucer, turn your moistened glass upside down into the salt and push it around to get the salt to adhere to it.
Then fill your glasses with about 4- 5 ice cubes, top with 100ml of the margarita, serve.

Delivery to France/ Denmark/ Netherlands is now available through the website. We will be using FedEx and costs have increased slightly, along with delivery times. It is possible you will also receive a duty and tax invoice from customs, we are yet to find an exact science to this but so far a few of our customers have been receiving charges that almost double their order. We will be experimenting week by week with other countries in Europe. If you wish to place an order to Europe please contact us directly and we can arrange.
Deliveries to Italy we can't facilitate currently. We have experienced many product restrictions and hefty government charges.
