Michele's Killer Margaritas Recipe


Our mom’s powerful margaritas are legendary among her friends, our friends, and friends of friends. Made with fresh lime juice, these are as good as margaritas get!

Serve these to your guests as they arrive; perfect for a risky-business themed party.


  • 5 cups tequila, preferably Cuervo Gold (so, it’s not top-shelf, but we’ve tried them all and this is the best)
  • 3 cups plus 2 tablespoons triple sec
  • 1 ¾ cups plus 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Coarse salt


Combine all the ingredients except the salt in a large pitcher, add ice, and stir vigorously for about 30 seconds. Spoon out the ice cubes. Store the pitcher in the refrigerator until party time. Serve in glasses with salted rims.
