    1. Make a sugar syrup by stirring together and bringing 125g sugar and 80ml water to the boil until the sugar dissolves; set aside to cool.
    2. Make the sour mix by briskly stirring together the 525ml water, lemon juice, 4 tbsp sugar and egg white; set aside.
    3. Combine the ice cubes, tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, 1 tbsp of the simple syrup and 125ml of the sour mix in a pitcher; stir vigorously to infuse the ice, 8 to 15 seconds.
    4. Run a lime wedge along the rim of a 200/225ml glass. Spread the salt onto a plate and dip the glass rims in the salt to coat; add ice if desired. Strain the mixture from the cocktail shaker into the glass to serve.

    This is a great recipe. Although I used splenda (2 Tbsp) instead of the simple syrup and I do not add the egg. They are great and friends love the fact that it is lower cal.  -  22 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I'm giving this 5 stars for actually giving me pure ingredients! I can't get the pre-concentrated stuff where I live so I am really excited about making this from scratch!  -  14 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My first time making a margarita. Yummy. I used lime juice in the sour mix since that's all I had, and I nixed the egg white. My only complaint is that the recipe makes odd amounts of simple syrup and sour mix...  -  17 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
