Fabulous FG Friday Cocktail: In honor of National Margarita Day

Pin It

In honor of a very special day, National Margarita Day, the Fairy Godmothers had to share with you a couple of our favorite margarita variations for our very special Friday Cocktail edition.  The basics are usually well known, your favorite tequila (NEVER buy a cheap brand! That’s a recipe for a headache later!), triple sec and lime juice.  Did you know that a splash of fresh orange juice will help to smooth out any margarita?  We also like to use frozen limeade as our base.  It’s much cheaper than a margarita mix, tastes better and is easy to keep it stocked in your freezer whenever an impromptu celebration or craving comes along.

The Italian Margarita
1 part Triple Sec
2 parts Tequila
1 part Orange Juice
4 parts lime juice

Blend with ice and top with a floater of Amaretto almond liquor

Perfect Margarita
In a shaker mix the following:
1 part Grand Marnier
1 part Cointreau
1 part Orange juice
3 parts Tequila
4 parts lime juice

Fill your shaker with ice and shake!  Serve your strained margarita up in  a chilled martini glass with an olive garnish and reserve the left overs in the shaker to top off your drink as you go.

What are your favorite twists or floaters to add to your margarita?
