Recipe: The Definitive Margarita

This video recipe provides step-by-step instructions for creating the finest margarita you're likely to ever taste. Enjoy!

  • 3/4 of a blender ice cubes
  • 1/2 of a blender tequila
  • 1-2 inches of triple sec
  • 1/2 can limeade concentrate
  • juice from 3-4 fresh limes
  • Coarse kosher salt
Put it all in the blender, in order, and blend for 15-20 seconds. Serve immediately in salted margarita glasses.


  1. There are so many things about this that I love, I don't even know where to begin! But, I will say that I love the new (maybe not so new, but new to me) arrangement of the house (from this perspective at least). Cool to see the door into the other part of the house actually come to life, and the old laundry closet turned into a decorative nook. Perhaps inspiration to complete some of our projects around here, with a yummy margarita reward. Thanks for sharing! And give that lovely assistant a big hug from me.

  2. Hey Campbell! Thanks for the kind words on the new layout. We spend a lot of our time in the kitchen... so we decided to make hanging out nearby more comfortable. And yeah, we're pretty well done with that addition (whew). I'll give the lovely assistant a hug for sure!


  3. Hey Derek,

    That was one fine looking Margarita - wish I had one now. One twist you might try is do half salt, half sugar to rim the glass. I know that sounds strange ... but try it - I bet you like it!


    P.S. Your blender kicks a** on mine - it would have struggled with all that ice.

  4. Hey Alek!

    I'll definitely try that. That blender has been through a lot, and is (amazingly) still going strong...



  5. Eeesh....my cheeks are hurting imagining the tang of the lime juice. What a nice, simple recipe. This goes on my to make list!

  6. Hi Melanie!

    I promise you will not be disappointed. Enjoy!
