Margaritas by the Pitcher (On the Rocks)

According to the Tipsy Texan, the basic margarita is tequila, lime and orange liqueur. The best commercially available brand is Cointreau, although check your local liquor store for Austin-produced Paula's Texas Orange, a wonderful less expensive substitute.
  • 3 cups tequila, chilled
  • 1-1/2 cups Cointreau, Paula's Texas Orange or triple sec, chilled
  • 2-1/2 cups fresh squeezed lime juice, chilled (10 to 12 medium limes)
  • lime wedges
  • salt
Mix together the tequila, triple sec and lime juice in a pitcher. To serve, rub the rim of each glass with a cut lime wedge and dip the rim into salt to coat it thoroughly. Reserve the lime for garnish.

Fill glasses with ice cubes, and pour margarita mix over the ice. Garnish with lime wedges.
Makes just over 6 cups.
Note: You can sweeten the drink with a few drops of agave nectar or some simple syrup. Buy containers of Margarita salt that are flat and handy for salting the glasses, but regular salt in a saucer works just fine. In our photograph, we're serving the sliced limes in a Fiesta small bowl.
