Freezing Lime Juice for Fabulous Margaritas

Freezing Lime Juice for Fabulous Margaritas

If you ever find yourself with an abundance of extra limes, one unique solution is to squeeze them, freeze them into ice trays, and use as needed for refreshing summer drinks. Here’s a simple Margarita recipe that’s always a crowd-pleaser:

Ingredients: 3 oz. Tequila, 2 oz. Lime Juice (or 2 Lime Juice Ice Cubes), 1 oz. Agave Nectar or Simple Syrup, 1 tsp. Orange Liqueur (Triple Sec), 1 Tbl. Salt for the glass rim (if desired).

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add Tequila, Lime Juice, Agave Nectar and Orange Liqueur. Cover and shake until mixed and chilled, about 30 seconds. (In general, the drink is ready by the time the shaker mists up.) Rim the glass with a lime slice and dip into Salt. Pour from the shaker into the glass, garnish with Frozen Lime Cubes. (For Cadillac Margaritas, add Grand Marnier as a floater).

Cheers and Enjoy!  David
