Marvelous Margaritas!

My dad makes the best, and I mean THE BEST margaritas! These are the kind of margaritas I dream of all winter and savor during family summer vacations. Recently dad shared his recipe with me, which I came to find out is actually from the Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. After making a batch this past weekend, I decided I ought to share it here on The Simple Gourmand.

Dad’s tip: Cheap white tequila works best. My tip: Depending on how many margaritas you want to drink, cheap tequila may not be a good idea :)

1/2 C fresh squeezed lime juice
2 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 C white tequila
1 C triple sec
3 C ice

Mix ingredients in the blender, or serve on the rocks. Enjoy!
