Margarita Recipe

One of my favorite drinks to enjoy is a Margarita. But a lot of people make margaritas that are either too sweet or too sour. This can leave you with a little heart-burn type feeling that I hate. And it’s all because of that store-bough mix.

To make a perfect margarita, it’s not too hard… and it’s taken me a lot of bad batches to come up with the perfect margarita recipe that you could drink all night.

Margaritas go perfect with Brisket Tacos

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 oz of Tequila
  • 1 oz of Grand Mariner
  • 1 oz of Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 oz Rose’s lime juice
  • Splash of Corona Beer (any Mexican beer can be used)
  • Coarse Salt for the glasses
  • Ice

This recipe is one that I use in ancillary Margarita competitions – and won a few times with.

Start with a shaker filled with ice and measure out 2 oz of Tequila.  I use Don Julio Reposado or Patron Reposado.. and I reserve the silver for taking shots.

Pour the tequila over the ice and then measure 1 oz of Grand Mariner and pour into the shaker.

Next squeeze a few of limes and collect the juice. Make sure you get the seeds out if you didn’t while squeezing.  Add 1 oz of Fresh Lime Juice and 1 oz of Rose’s Lime Juice to the shaker.

Now your asking me what’s the beer for? Well you add a splash of Corona, put the top on the shaker, and give it a good shaking.  Pour the mixture into a salt rimmed Margarita glass and enjoy.  Now you’ve got a great tasting margarita without that cheap sweet and sour taste.

    I’ve been following your site and buying your Killer Hogs Dry Rubs for Several Years. I spend a lot of time with Erik Forester and the crew at Mason Dixon BBq in Green Castle PA. Thanks for All you do, I’ve learned a lot! Do you have any tips for smoking Hot Links or Kielbasa Sausage?

    Thanks Again,

    Colin

      1. About your margarita recipe;
        I’m not familiar with the rose’s lime juice. Is it a concentrated juice sold in a bottle?

  2. What is your opinion on the best n most accurate meat thermometer on the market?
    Not interested in the ones with wifi. Just a digital 2 probe w/remote would work for me.
    But I am concerned with temp accuracy.
    Great video’s by the way! I’m green to wood pellet smoking, so hopefully you can be my
    “to go guy”.

  3. Malcom, I’m new to smoking and after a few failed attempts a friend told me about your site. Thank you! I’ve got awesome BBQ coming off the smoker thanks to you! I’ve been reading through all your recipes and found your margarita. The way you know BBQ I know Tequila. if you can find it please try El Tesoro. In my opinion it’s arguably the best Tequila on the market and it’s not even the most expensive. It will take any drink calling for Tequila to the next level.
