1 lime, halved

Kosher salt

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (5 limes)

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (1 lemon)

1 cup Triple Sec

3 cups ice

1 cup white tequila


  1. If you like margaritas served in a glass with salt, rub the outside rims of six glasses with a cut lime and dip each glass lightly into a plate of kosher salt.
  2. Combine the lime juice, lemon juice, Triple Sec, and ice in a blender and puree until completely blended. Add the tequila and puree for 2 seconds more. Serve over ice.
  3. If you prefer frozen margaritas, halve each of the ingredients, double the ice, and blend in two batches. Serve with a cut lime.
