    Tried making some frozen margaritas from scratch last night and they were pretty terrible. Lime juice, orange liqueur, cuervo, little sugar, and ice. Just not a whole lot of taste there. Too much ice maybe? Crappy limes? :headscratch:

    Thanks for any help.

    You can take some quality Margarita mix and freeze it in an ice cube tray...
    That way there's no water added...

    Same thing I do with Smoothies... Freeze the bananas and strawberries...

    Then just add tequila and some Triple Sec...

    I like to rim the glass with sugar rather than salt... Horrible gettin' a mouthful of salt..

    :beer:

    Use the recipe on the back of the roses lime juice bottle....its a good journeymen recipe. Tequila, lime juice, triple sec, sweet and sour. We tend to a little more triple sec and a little less lime juice.

    Try the Can Can recipe, it's WAY better than it sounds:

    1 can limeade concentrate
    using same can, add 1 can each of:
    tequila
    beer (I know, sounds gross, but just do it)
    triple sec
    water.
    I mix salt and sugar, equal parts for the glass rim.

    My own recipe is similar: add to your blender-

    1 can frozen limeade concentrate
    1 empty limeade can full of tequila + 1/2 can of vodka
    1 bottle of Corona
    then pack the blender to the tippy top with ice and fire it up

    WARNING: Do not try this if you have any plans at all for the next four hours or so. These will get you bombed like Hiroshima.

    I'm a die hard Jose Quervo mix and tequila, on the rocks with and slice of lime and rim full of salt, BUT...last summer a girl at the local liquor store gave me the recipe above(minus the triple sec)and it is REALLY good!! I used a Corona beer.. No kidding, I was a little skeptical before I tried it.
