    This is my husband's secret recipe. We always serve this to our favourite friends. A very straightforward and authentic margarita with no added sugar.

    This was always been a good cocktail drink for me and my hubby every time we are chatting with each other or with some friends at home. I also read the same recipes in some valuable recipe sites like gourmetrecipe to have a comparison and more exciting tastes of it. Yours is one the best. This truly was a great one to sip with chilled ice this summer.  -  25 Jul 2012


    These really are the best margaritas! I didn't know what silver tequila was, so i just used regular. Thanks for the recipe!  -  24 Jul 2012


    Fresh lime juice is the secret. I disagree with the bartender who recommends Cuervo -- I've slowly come to believe that the people who order Patron silver margaritas are not idiots wasting fine tequila. It's great for margaritas. A cheaper alternative might be Sauva Hornitos. My personal favorite is Herradura, but like the reviewer who is a restaurant owner and bartender, it can be a waste. Good tequila is like good wine, and you don't have to slam it like a college kid to enjoy it.  -  23 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
