First things first, throw out those crappy, premade, sugary-sweet margarita mixes. They suck.
Then, follow the directions below.
PITCHER-PERFECT MARGARITA(Recipe found on Chow.com)
Ingredients8 cups cold water
1 liter 100% agave tequila, chilled
2 (12 oz) cans frozen limeade, thawed in refrigerator
1/2 cup frozen concentrate orange juice, thawed in refrigerator
1/4 cup lime juice
Directions1. Throw all of the ingredients into a pitcher. Mix. Refrigerate.
2. Rub a lime wedge along the rim of your glass. Dip rim in a shallow dish of salt. We used Kosher because it's chunkier and looked more legit.
3. Serve margarita over ice.
National Tequila Day is Wednesday, July 24th.
