Classic Margarita - Jug

Serves

1 Jug - Serves 10

Our recipe omits the usual Triple Sec, while doubling the tequila, which we feels 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.

Method

Making the simple sugar syrup
  1. 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

  1. Add the tequila, lime juice and sugar syrup to the jug, stir, top up with ice.

To finish 

  1. 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.
  2. Then fill your glasses with about 4- 5 ice cubes, top with 100ml of the margarita, serve.
