It doesn't matter if it is a non-alcoholic version, or one of those that have a kick, the margarita is a perennial favorite of the social scene. The margarita is one of those classic party drinks that always seem to turn up at any gathering of friends and family. The only problem with a magnificent margarita is that they invariably cost more than you want to pay, if you purchase them from your local bar or restaurant. Learn how to make some yourself, and save a little money at your next gathering. Here are a few recipes for some fantastic margaritas that you will just love.
This recipe will make you one straight margarita. If you want to make this in a larger batch, for more people, keep in mind the simple ratio that was used here. That ratio is simply 3:2:1, meaning three parts tequila, two parts lime juice, and one part Cointreau, Triple Sec, or Grand Mariner. If you would like to have a virgin (non alcoholic) version of this drink, then simply replace the Cointreau with a sweet and sour mix, and the tequila with some 7-Up, or Sprite.
This recipe will make you two banana margaritas. Simply place all the ingredients into a blender and mix it all together for a great tasting concoction.
Mix together some frozen margaritas with this fantastic variation. The trick with this variation lies in the ice. You don't want to over do the ice, but rather have it be slightly slushy, kind of like a Slurpee that you may get from your local convenience store. While you can use fresh fruit in this recipe, it would actually be better if you used frozen fruit since it is easier to mix into a slush that way. Some of the best flavors to use would be things like peach, raspberry, strawberry, or even blueberry.
When making your margaritas, remember two things. The first is the ratio of 3:2:1; the second, to have some responsible fun. The first is the key to a successful margarita, and the second is the key to a happy and fun party in which no one gets hurt. Enjoy.
