Miguelito’s 3-2-1 Casa Margarita Recipe

Posted by mk@mkrieger.com in: Activity

We’ve had many requests over the years for our perfect Margarita recipe.  I have to give credit to our friend, Restaurant owner and ex-bartender Chris Kelton, who passed this on to me at a party years ago.  I’ve never received more compliments than I have with this famous recipe, so please enjoy it (responsibly) with your friends and family.

La Casa Margarita’s 3-2-1 Margaritas

3 oz. Limeade (from frozen concentrate is fine; see recipe for home made limeade below)
2 oz. Tequila (We use 100% Agave! You should too)
1 oz. Triple-Sec

Fill shaker with ice.  Add ingredients and shake well.  Pour into margarita glasses (salt optional).  Enjoy!
For “Cadillac” version:  Float 1/2 oz Grand Marnier or Cointreau on top

Miguelito’s Limeade

1 1/2 cups fresh lime juice (about 6-8 limes worth)
4 cups water
3/4 cup sugar or equiv sweetener (for the sugar averse)

Starting with fresh limes, squeeze 1-1/2 cups worth of juice.  ( hint:  if the limes are in the fridg, put them in the microwave for about 6 seconds then roll them to “loosen” the juice)

Add lime juice, water, and sugar in a pitcher.  Stir well

That’s it!  ( and yes, we have a juicer in La Casa Margarita ).
