Give me a break...who shall remember all that when the party is already rocking? cocktails are supposed to be easy with just a few ingredients, so please keep it that way. one recipe which always works and is easy to remember (even after a couple of tequila shots) is: 1-2-3 1 unit cointreau or triple sec (bols is a good brand) 2 units golden tequila (jose cuervo always works) 3 units lime juice (ripe is perfect) plus ice cubes the perfection would be: - take a blender (=1.8l, why making anything less if you gonna ask for more anyway :) - fill it up with ice cubes - put in 2oz (=4cl) cointreau or tiple sec (=1unit) 4oz (=8cl) tequila (=2units) 6oz (=12cl) lime juice (=3units) and then...HIT THE BUTTON! let it run until all the cubes are broken into smooth frozen ice. it's gonna be a very tasty margarita in which you tase every single ingredient - enjoy and get high on it! cheers!

Fresh lemon/lime juice is good, yes...can also be topped with a liquer like Grand Marnier or Amaretto.

If using fresh limes, use about 1/4 as much as you would bottled lime juice. Fresh lime is LOTS stronger.

add a spoon full of powdered sugar to the mix, and fresh sqeezed lime juice rather than the kind you buy in a bottle. it'll be the best margarita you've ever had my friend

Here is my, much sought after, and soon to be world famous, secret 'Hammond' margarita recipe... Ingredients: lots of frozen limeade juice (minute maid is nice) Gold tequila (you'll probably need a 1.75 ltr. for a whole party) A fifth of triple sec (cheap triple sec is fine) margarita salt (optional) fresh limes (optional, but encouraged.... very classy...) seven-up (or sprite) six pack (or more) of Corona beer ________________________________ you'll need one frozen Limeade juice (comes in a little frozen cylinder) per pitcher... so you'll probably need several of them for a whole party.... dump 1 frozen limeade into the blender.... now FILL the empty limeade cardboard cylinder to the top with gold Tequila.... dump in blender... (white tequila isn't near as good as gold.... cuervo gold is nice and not terribly expensive...) fill the limeade can half way up with triple sec... (spend more money on good tequila, and buy cheap triple sec) dump in blender... add some plain ice to blender (a handful or two...) blend....... till smooth dump slush out of the blender into a pitcher... gently add one corona beer to the slush in the pitcher (try not to let it get all foamy) (the corona is important... it adds really nice flavor to the margarita... people always seem to freak out when they see you adding beer to a cocktail... just smile and say "relax... I know what I doing...") then fill the pitcher the rest of the way up with 7-up/sprite (this is a judgement call) sprite is a little more sweet than 7-up... 7-up is kind of crisp and yummy... your pick though.... gently stir the pitcher (slush, beer, & 7-up) with a big wooden spoon or something... garnish individual glasses with a little fresh lime... pour into glasses... enjoy! IMPORTANT NOTE- only add the carbonated ingredients (beer/7-up) AFTER you have blended the slush.... carbonation and blenders do not mix well...

If you try other flavors (not lime), you should rim the glass with sugar and not salt. They altered my instructions slightly.
