The Best Margarita Recipe! You will never want to use mix again!

I love margaritas.  If you have been with me here in this little space of mine on the interwebs you probably already know we have a standing Friday Night Dinner reservation at our favorite local Mexican place and I enjoy a margarita the size of my head as my reward for keeping everyone in my house alive for the week.

National Margarita Day - Make the Best Margarita

The key to the awesomeness of these margaritas is using a good quality tequila and FRESH squeezed lime juice.  Not cheap liquor and not bottle lime juice.  Believe me.  I have made these time and time again and the fresh ingredients are the KEY to this recipe being the BEST Margarita Recipe!

My favorite tequila to use in this is Patron Silver.  If you like the looks of your margaritas to be more golden in color, then you will want to use a darker tequila.

As for my secret ingredient in the salt…wait for it…Citrus Essential Oils.  Hands down so awesome!

Essential Oils infused Margarita Salts

TIP:  You do not need to purchase special salt for the rim of your glasses!  Coarse Sea Salt works perfectly and can be used for cooking as well!

You do not need “margarita salt” either.  My favorite is regular sea salt.  Coarse sea salt is a bit too big.  I add a few drops of my favorite essential oil to the salt and mix it around a bit, then poor onto a flat dish or small plate.  You can use the squeezed lime to wet the rim of your glass and then dip in the salt.  The citrus salt adds a whole new level of flavor!  You also get the bold citrus smell and it is amazing!  (not pictured here is grapefruit essential oil which is my personal favorite)
