Spring Break Margarita Recipe with Juice Bruce
If you’re lucky enough to be revealing the coloured foil underneath Mexico on your Scratch Map® world map poster this Spring Break, we think you need to get a margarita recipe down. Or if like us, you didn’t quite get your flights booked to Cancun in time (your bank account/annual leave said no) and need some consoling that you won’t be dancing around in a bikini to MTV bangers, just remember that when life gives you lemons (limes), make margaritas! So stop sulking, get a group of mates together, grab a paddling pool, throw on your sombrero and have your own Spring Break in your back garden with our cracking margarita recipe. After two of these, you won’t even be able to spell Cancun let alone be sad about it…
What you’ll need:
- Large jug or punch bowl
- Juice Bruce Squeezer
- Nessie Ladle
- 750ml bottle of tequila (tip: use a high quality, 100% agave tequila if you want a better chance at avoiding the hangover…)
- 2 cups of Triple Sec or Cointreau
- 1 cup of freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1 lime (to flavour the rim of the glasses)
- 2 bags of ice cubes
First things first, pour some salt onto a plate and cut one lime into wedges to rim the edge of the glasses with. You can do this right before you serve the draaaaanks for extra freshness. In the meantime, fill each glass with ice cubes to chill. You’ll throw these out before serving. Start squeezing the rest of limes with Juice Bruce. Once you’ve got a cup full pour it, along with the bottle bottle of tequila, 2 cups of Triple Sec or Cointreau into the jug and give it a good stir. Taste and add more orange liqueur if you think your margaritas need more sweet oranginess to balance the other flavours.
Throw the ice out of the glasses, run a lime wedge round the rim of the glass and invert into the plate with the salt to give them a light dusting round the edge. Use Nessie Ladle to fill the glass with your delicious concoction and enjoy!
If you’re actually heading to Mexico and don’t want to worry about glassware, serve in our Party Cups instead. The quirky characters will distract you from the lack of salt around the rim of your glass…
