Some of you might know that I live in Los Angeles and one of my favorite restaurants to go to is Casa Vega. It’s fun it’s fabulous and I love to go there to run into friends. Plus the owners of Casa Vega have a son that happen to go to our daughters school. So we try to support the local businesses in our neighborhood and community. I just love a good Margarita and when I have a bad day I always try to make lemons into lemonade or go have a Margarita.
Serves 16 (8 oz drinks)
Traditional Margarita Ingredients:
4 cups lemon lime juice
3 1/2 cups sugar
8 cups water
4 cups ice
1/2 shot triple sec
1 shot tequila
Juice about 25 to 30 lemon/limes and set aside.
Take sugar and water and bring to a boil
Take lemon juice and ice place in large picture
Next add boiling water mixture and stir.
Last add 1/2 shot triple second and 1 shot tequila to 8oz of Margarita mix made above.
Blend in blender or serve on the rocks.
This serves about 16-20 (8 oz Margaritas) You could make it stretch if you stretch if you blend and add ice. Or poor over a full glass of ice. But don't forget you mix one at a time so if you were making premixed you would add the 16 shots of tequila and 8 shots of triple sec. Also if you want a strawberry or raspberry margarita add a handful of berries to the blender while blending.
Enjoy and Bon Appetite
