Here’s my killer Margarita recipe that really packs a punch. Plus you can make it in advance so you always have a ready supply in the fridge. Once you’ve made the real thing, you’ll never go back to mixes or frozen.


  • 1/3 cup of sugar dissolved in 1 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice + 1 tsp zest
  • 1/4 cup orange liqueur (Triple Sec, Cointreau, Grand Torres)
  • 1 3/4 cup tequila

Combine and leave in fridge at least 6 hours.
Serve over ice.

Warning: These are very potent – you may want to water it down if you don’t have a high tolerance for alcohol.

Advice: Your life will be easier if you buy the seedless limes and let them reach room temperature before juicing. Roll the limes with a bit of pressure against the counter top before squeezing to break the citrus fibres up.

Note: This recipe doesn’t work well with Calamansi limes. If you are in Singapore, I’ve found the limes at Giant to be cheaper and juicier than Cold Storage.
