Homemade Margarita Mix

I was at the supermarket the other day, and noticed an incredible sale on limes: 12/$1.  What a deal!  I remember Shawnda’s story about scouring the city for limes at a good price so she could stock up on margarita mix.  I’ve never thought to make my own mix – usually I only drink margaritas when I’m out – but seeing all those lovely limes convinced me to try.  I filled a bag and dashed home.

The limes I got were extra juicy – it only took six limes to make 1 cup of juice.  There must have been some bumper crop somewhere.  The margarita mix is a little strong, because I anticipated that it would dilute a bit when added with ice.

Homemade Margarita Mix

This recipe is meant to be a little stronger, to accommodate when ice is added to the final drink. If storing the mix for a later use, add a 1/4 c of water before using.

Ingredients

1 c fresh lime juice (6-10 limes)
3/4 c water
1/2 c sugar

Instructions

  1. Place ingredients in a saucepan and heat over medium-high until sugar has melted, stirring occasionally. Let cool.
  2. Use immediately, or store in the fridge for 5-7 days. Alternately, freeze and pull out when you're ready to make margaritas.
