Ingredients
  • 8 oz. Key lime juice
  • 8 oz. Simple syrup
  • 6 oz. Reposado tequila
  • 2 oz. Orange Liqueur
  • 1 Lime, sliced in wedges for garnish
  • Coarse salt to rim glasses, if desired
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Pour lime juice, simple syrup, tequila and orange liqueur in to a quart size canning jar. Screw lid on jar securely and shake well.
  2. Moisten the rim of each glass with a piece of lime, then roll the rim evenly in coarse salt, if desired. Fill glass half full of crushed ice and pour margarita over ice.
  3. Garnish with a fresh lime slice.
  4. Relax and enjoy with Unicoi Preserves, cheese, charcuterie, crusty bread and friends.
  5. Tip: To make a simple syrup, just mix equal parts sugar and water together in a sauce pan and heat it until the sugar is dissolved. For example, heat 1 cup of water and stir in 1 cup sugar until dissolved. Refrigerate until cold. We like to make a large batch and keep it on hand in the refrigerator in a mason jar.
