Depends on the recipe.A real recipe involves lime juice,triple sec,sweet and sour and the tequila, a mix is supposed to have all you need.But I know someone here can give you a great recipe.Bottom line its the tequila that is the most important

Easy Recipe-

5 parts Lime mix
5 parts tequila
3 parts triple sec


Lately I've been buying this Cuervo Oranjo, and cut back my lime mix to 4 parts.

The key to the above recipeis finding some really great lime mix. My favorite is Collins Bar Lime, though I haven't seen it in forever, I don't know if they make it anymore. The lime mix should be more sour than sweet. Once thing I definitely don't like is a margarita with too much sugar.


For strawberry margaritas, thaw some frozen strawberris (the kind in sugar), and simply puree equal parts tequila and strawberries. That's your mix. When you're ready to serve, simply combine with ice in a blender.

Don't forget the ice and salt My margarita must be on the rocks with salt around the rim of the glass. And I read, somewhere on this board, I think, that you should only use tequila made from 100% agave. It's the fillers that cause headaches the day after.

I prefer my silver patron in a rocks glass, on ice, with three slices of lime. Delicious!
