INGREDIENTS
  • ½ cup kosher salt
  • 3 ½ cups reposado or añejo tequila
  • 2 ½ cups freshly squeezed lime juice, strained
  • 1 cup Cointreau or orange liqueur
  • ½ cup cup agave nectar
  • Crushed ice
  • Lime wedges
DIRECTIONS
  1. Pour the salt into a shallow dish. Rim 6-8 lowball glasses with a lime wedge and dip into the kosher salt.
  2. In a large pitcher add the tequila, lime juice, Cointreau, and agave to taste, and stir for 30 seconds. (Note: the agave nectar is totally to your preference! Some days I like a sweeter margarita and put the full cup of agave and other days I only like a small amount. Start out with 1⁄2 cup and taste test your way up.)
  3. Place the margarita batch into the fridge for 1-2 hours before serving or fill glasses with crushed ice. Garnish with lime wedges and serve.
