Our traditional cocktail reference book called for 1 oz lime juice, 1 oz tequila, and 2/3 oz triple sec. We upped the juice content just a tad, with winning combo of 0.5oz each lime, grapefruit, and orange juices. We used Dulcie’s automatic citrus juicer thingy to squeeze the fresh juice. Many messes ensued. If I were to do this again I’d just squeeze everything by hand; you only need 1/2 ounce of each juice which is easy to do.
Then we took our Citrus Margaritas outside and enjoyed them in the sunny backyard while plotting our Cinco de Mayo plans. They involve a variety of salsas and homemade tortilla chips…!
Combine all, pour over ice, and serve with a salted rim. We used kosher salt for its big flaky salt crystals.
