9 Margarita Recipes You’ll Want to Make All Summer Long
I’m not here to yuck anyone’s yum, but if your go-to margarita involves pouring tequila into some pre-made sweet-and-sour mix, it might be time to broaden your horizons.

And the secret to a next-level sip is simple: Skip sour mixes and bottled lime juice, and squeeze your own limes instead. The fresh juice will add a crisp, sour flavor, and will make it easier to control the level of sweetness. Below, you’ll find a few classic margaritas, plus several riffs on the original lime-tequila-Triple Sec combination. Whatever you’re in the mood for, you’ll find it here!
