Limes and lime juice for coconut margarita recipe.

What kind of limes are best for margaritas?

Feel free to buy the standard limes in the produce section at your grocery store. You’ll need approximately 2 limes per margarita you plan to make – 1 for juice the other for wedges or slices. 

For this strawberry lime margarita, you’ll need 1 oz. of lime juice per drink. Many limes vary, so plan for two limes per drink.

For juicing limes, I recommend a good citrus juicer. This one from Amazon is one we’ve had in our house for years. It is very durable, dishwasher-safe and can juice both lemons and limes.

What kind of alcohol is a margarita?

A margarita is a tequila based drink. It is also made with lime juice, Cointreau (or Triple Sec) and any other fruit of your choice.

What tequila is best for margaritas?

According to Delish, there are many, many recommended tequilas for margaritas. Tequila can get expensive, so just choose the best brand that you can afford. We like Herradura Reposado, which is one of the recommended tequilas on Delish’s list!

What is better in a margarita Cointreau or Triple Sec?

After much trial and error, we’ve discovered that Cointreau is much better in a margarita. Cointreau is an orange liqueur, made with sweet and bitter rinds of orange. It pairs really well with the lime juice and tequila.

Bust out the tequila, its time for a Margarita! Blended with frozen strawberries, lime juice, and rimmed with salt, these frozen margaritas are easy to make, wonderfully refreshing and an all-time favorite cocktail!

How do you make Strawberry Margaritas from scratch?

To make a frozen strawberry margarita recipe, you’ll need frozen strawberries, tequila, Cointreau and fresh lime juice. Add these to a blender, and blend until smooth. Pour into prepared glasses and enjoy right away while cold.

To make a strawberry margarita on the rocks, you’ll need fresh strawberries, tequila, Cointreau and fresh lime juice. Muddle (mash) the strawberries in a cocktail shaker, then fill the shaker with ice. Add the tequila, Cointreau and lime juice. Shake well. Pour into prepared glasses with ice.

Do I have to add salt to my margarita glass?

No. This is totally personal preference. Some people enjoy a salted rim, others prefer no salt. If you are making margarita for guests, ask your friends how they prefer their cocktail, and bar-tend accordingly.

If you’re looking for margarita salt, I recommend this Jose Cuervo Margarita Salt on Amazon.

What glasses are best for margaritas?

A curved wide-mouth ups glass is typical for a margarita, especially when its frozen. An ups glass (a glass with a stem) is designed to keep your drink colder for longer.

When the heat from your hands is placed on the stem of the glass, it does not interfere with the temperature of the drink, thus keeping it cold.

More often, if a drink is served on the rocks, it is served in a short (non-stem) rocks glass. Add salt accordingly.
