Simple Pitcher Of Margarita Recipe
DaRecipe – Simple Pitcher Of Margarita Recipe – After tweaking with several other margarita recipes, I finally found a way to get that ‘real’ margarita taste in a pitcher size for parties. Great for parties, but a bit on the strong side! Use good quality tequila or you’re gonna be in for a headache… After cutting back on the tequila and using crushed ice this was pretty good. This is a basic margarita recipe and is very good. Using high quality triple sec (such as cointreau) will make it alot better. Anyone who says it is too strong is likely using cheap tequila!

Besides making Pina Coladas last night/this morning for my GF’s b-day party, I made margaritas using this recipe….. The first batch I made, I did use the 2 cups of tequila and it was strong!!!! Too strong!!! From there on out, I only used one cup and it was still pretty strong using that. All in all, they were good. My guest called it top restaurant quality strength margaritas. I had to give only 4 stars because I have no idea why the recipe calls for 2 cups of tequila when it only needs one.
