A margarita made with freshly squeezed limes and good-quality tequila is a simple pleasure you can easily enjoy at home. Having an easy to use (and easy to clean) citrus juicer makes juicing a bag of limes quick and effortless! Kick your feet up this weekend, relax, and take your sweet time sipping a slushy blended margarita with a side of corn tortilla chip and salsa. Or enjoy a thirst-quenching margarita on the rocks as you sit down to your Cinco de Mayo feast.


  • 1 cup tequila
  • 3/4 cup orange liqueur, such as Triple Sec
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Ice cubes


Combine first 4 ingredients in a 4-cup measuring cup.


Fill blender halfway with ice cubes. Add half of margarita mixture. Blend until mixture is thick and icy. Divide between two glasses. Repeat with more ice cubes and remaining margarita mixture.


Fill four glasses with ice cubes. Divide margarita mixture among glasses and serve.

DO-AHEAD TIP: Margarita mixture can be made up to 8 hours ahead and prior to being blended with ice. Cover and refrigerate.
