National Tequila Day.

With National Tequila Day just around the corner, I felt it was key that we all have a really solid margarita recipe on hand. You know, because it's important.



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)

Ingredients

8 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

Optional

Lime wedges
Salt

Directions

1. 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.

Like you didn't know.

Bessssst recipe. This is almost identical to my "perfect margarita" mix but we often use triple sec in place of OJ because we're lazy alcoholics.
