Alex’s Margaritas

May 27, 2020

My husband, Alex, has been making these margaritas for years when we have company over and they’re always a hit.

If you’re from the midwest, they’re like an upgraded Carlos O’Kelly’s margarita.

If you’re not from the midwest, picture any sit down Mexican chain restaurant. You know the one. They serve their margaritas in giant glasses and remind you of college and/or pre-parenting days…

These are like that, but better.

The ingredients are simple – limeade concentrate, water, tequila, triple sec, orange juice, and agave nectar. Just mix in a pitcher, fill to the top with ice, and you’re ready to go.

The best part is that they make enough to serve a crowd – remember crowds? What a time.

So next time you’re ready to host a party or party with your quaran-team, cook up a batch of carnitas or cauliflower tacos, mix up a pitcher of margaritas, and bust out the board games.
Do people still play board games?
Clearly I know how to party.
