Who doesn’t love Margaritas?! I sure do! But I hate it when you go to a restaurant and order a margarita and it just takes like lime juice or sweet and sour mix. I want some punch in my Margaritas! We go to Mexico frequently and they have the best Margaritas, no matter where we go! I spent a lot of time trying different concoctions of Margarita mixes and Tequila and have learned that you have to get the good stuff. Getting the cheap stuff will result in a cheap margarita without the good flavor. So here’s my recipe for the Best Margarita!

Watch me make these Margaritas, along with Pork Tacos and Cinnamon Tortilla Crisps LIVE on my YouTube Channel Here!
