What's Brewing?...Homemade Margaritas

I love tequila, it is my go-to liquor. Most people have had a bad experience with a particular liquor...mine was Jack Daniels Whiskey. Not tequila though. Tequila is always a good time, it is smooth, relaxing, and fun! When paired with lime is can only get better. (I love lime, just look at my blog name!) I used to only drink margaritas in the summer, but recently I wanted to spice up a cold evening, so what better idea than a homemade margarita.


  • 2 ounces tequila (use a shot glass to measure)
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 3 limes
  • 2 tablespoons light agave nectar
  • 2 ice cubes


Dip the rim of a martini or other wide rimmed glass into a saucer of tequila. Next, dip the glass into the kosher salt to coat the rim. Set aside.

Cut a garnish off of one of the lime. Juice the rest of the limes and pour into a shaker...or two glasses. Add the agave nectar and a few ice cubes and shake well for about 1 minute.

Pour into your rimmed glass and top the side with a lime wedge.

  1. I like to rub the glass rim with the cut lime and dip that in the salt. I also use a tiny bit of Triple Sec instead of agave. You can use the cheap stuff and it's still pretty good! Triple Sec is also great on chocolate ice cream.
