Midnight Margaritas JENRON DESIGNS 4

There is nothing I love better than a few Midnight Margaritas so check out my super easy recipe here!

It is getting to be that time of year again that I start to crave those Midnight Margaritas so I am sharing my super easy recipe with you guys. Honestly this post reminds a bit of Practical Magic when the ladies decide to have a few Midnight Margaritas and talking smack around the kitchen table, which seems like the best time ever! I have heard (total here say) while filming that particular scene, they really partook in those famous Margaritas for a more “authentic” take, bravo ladies lol!

Well I feel like that question is subjective as there are so many great variations and recipes out there, wouldn’t you agree? I mean I personally have not met a Margarita that I don’t like to be honest as they are one of my favorite drinks. Midnight Margaritas JENRON DESIGNS 7However today I am just talking about a  basic fresh lemon juice margarita, nothing she she or fancy foo foo, although I love those too. Just a simple clean basic Margarita, like you are on the beach Tulum or Cabo and this is what the bartender is making for you.  Midnight Margaritas JENRON DESIGNS 6 To make the best margarita mix, all you really need are these three basic margarita ingredients:

  • Tequila– I use a 100% agave Reposado Silver which is traditionally considered to be the best tequila for margaritas. However, you can use any type of tequila like a smoky mezcal will make a fun variation mixed with jalapenos and tarjin.
  • Orange Liqueur– Grand Marnier, Cointreau or Triple Sec are all delicious options you can use as an Orange Liqueur. I personally use Grand Marnier or Cointreau in my margaritas regularly.
  • Fresh Lime Juice  I highly recommend juicing your own limes for the best flavor versus buying a store bought lime juice.

Midnight Margaritas JENRON DESIGNS 2 Here is what you need per glass:

  • 1 1/2 oz 100% Agave Silver Tequila
  • 1 oz Orange Liqueur (Grand Marnier, Cointreau or Triple Sec)
  • 3/4 oz freshly-squeezed lime juice
  • Simple syrup, to taste (optional) 1 tbsp sugar to 2 tbsp water dissolved
  • Lime Slices
  • Coarse Salt to rim the glass (optional)Midnight Margaritas JENRON DESIGNS 3

For A Cinco De Mayo Style Pitcher Party:

  • 3 cups 100% Agave Silver Tequila
  • 2 cups Orange Liqueur (Grand Marnier, Cointreau or Triple Sec)
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly-squeezed lime juice
  • Simple syrup, to taste (1/4 sugar 1/2 cup water dissolved)
  • Lime Slices
  • Coarse Salt to rim the glass (optional)

I like to chill mine in the refrigerator as I find ice will water done the flavors too much for my taste. Midnight Margaritas JENRON DESIGNS 6Serve these up with some Chip & Salsa, Tacos or homemade Nachos for the perfect little fiesta, or a midnight snack!
