Cinco de Mayo – Lemon Lime Margarita

Are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo this coming week? (…or just looking for an excuse to make delicious cocktails?!) With a slight summer twist on the traditional recipe, why not try this truly sensational lemon-lime margarita concoction?


Here’s what you’ll need to make 4 cocktails:

  • 4 Kilner preserve jars (0.5L)…The threaded rims hold the salt on the edges really well!
  • A large pitcher
  • A small shallow bowl
  • 2oz lime juice (fresh squeezed is best)
  • 4oz lemon juice (fresh squeezed)
  • 6oz Tequila
  • 3oz Triple Sec
  • Agave Nectar (You can also use sugar, but agave tastes better.)
  • Ice
  • Kosher salt

And if you feel like spicing things up a bit, add a little bit more Mexico to your cocktail…

  • 1 fresh Jalapeno (optional)
  • Cayenne pepper (optional)

Instructions

  1. Figure out how many of your guests want spicy margaritas and how many want mild.
  2. Pour salt into your shallow bowl.
  3. Using a slice of lemon or lime, moisten the edge of your Kilner jar drinking glasses.
  4. Dip the moistened rims of the glasses for the non-spicy margaritas in salt. Tap once and flip over.
  5. Now, add cayenne pepper to your salt.
  6. Moisten the edges of the glasses for your spicy margarita drinkers. Dip the glasses in the cayenne/salt mixture. Tap once and flip right side up.
  7. Add a healthy pinch of salt/cayenne mixture and a slice of fresh jalapeno to the spicy glasses.
  8. In a pitcher, combine the tequila, lemon juice, lime juice and triple sec.
  9. Taste and add agave nectar to sweeten to your taste.
  10. Put some ice cubes in each glass and pour your Margarita mix in carefully, so you don’t mess up those salted rims.
  11. Drink and enjoy!!

Pssstt…If you’re making margaritas for the whole party why not use a 5 litre Kilner dispenser so
your guests can drink all night long!
