Whether you’re looking for a refresher on how to start making margaritas, or just want to pick up a few basics, this guide will walk you through everything you need to know to make the most of your margaritos.
For starters, we’re going back to basics, starting with a recipe that we’ve used on countless occasions, and that has served as a guide for countless others.
If we missed a recipe, let us know in the comments below and we’ll get to it.
What You Need to Know First, you need some basic ingredients to make these drinks.
The ingredients you’ll need: 1 large margarillo, about 1 1/2 cups water, 1 1 1,000-ml bottle of Sprite, or a large glass of water 1.5 ounces fresh lime juice, or 2 to 3 tablespoons (depending on how much you like your margs) Lime wedges, for garnish Lime juice (optional) (optional: lemonade, if desired) 1/4 cup white vinegar (optional, but recommended) What you’re gonna need to do: Start by boiling the lime juice.
Add all of the ingredients and mix until the mixture is creamy.
If it’s too thick, add some water and mix again.
Once the mixture becomes smooth, add the soda, water, lime juice and vinegar.
You should have a thick sauce that can be poured over ice or stirred into ice cream.
When you’re ready to serve, garnish the drinks with fresh lime wedges.
We like to add a splash of lemonade to the drinks, but it’s up to you.
You can also garnish them with some fresh lime, lemon, or other fruit if you prefer.
You might want to add some of the lime wedging to make it a little more flavorful.
After serving, pour some of your favorite margarilla onto a plate, then add a few ice cubes for added flavor.
To make your first margarite, use the soda and water you boiled the lime, or use a glass that is slightly smaller than the one you used to make those margariths.
Fill the glass to the top with the water.
Using your fork, remove the lime and wedge it into the lime wedge.
Use a fork to spread the wedge on the bottom of the glass.
Put the wedge into a clean, warm place.
Repeat with the rest of the margarillas.
If you’ve never made margaridos before, be sure to check out the video below to learn how to do it.
You should be able to make several of these, and if you’re not satisfied with the taste, it’s not that bad, either.
If you’re a beginner, the easiest way to make some drinks is to mix up a batch of lime wedged soda and a glass of ice water.
You’re going for a thicker, more flavorful drink, but this is a quick way to start.
It’s also great for adding extra punch to your next margarado.
You can add a dash of lemon to the mix for a slight lime flavor.
Or add a little bit of lime juice to make an even more sour punch.
And if you have the time and ingredients, you can make them yourself.
Just remember to be careful when you do so.
If the drink doesn’t taste right, there’s a good chance it’s a lemon wedge.
