  • 18 ounces Tequila Blanco
  • 18 ounces fresh squeezed lime juice (could be fresh bottled lime juice from the refrigerated section, but not the concentrated kind. FRESH)
  • 9 ounces La Belle or Grand Marnier
  • 8 ounces simple syrup + a little extra for glass rims
  • 3 ounces orange juice
  • 3 ounces Triple Sec
  • Coarse or flake¬†sea salt for glass rims
  • Sliced lime and orange for garnish


  • Start by making the simple syrup if you don't have any on hand. Mix 7 ounces sugar with 7 ounces water. Microwave until the sugar has dissolved. You should have about 9-10 ounces so there will be a little extra for rimming the glasses.
  • Now pour all the ingredients in a large pitcher. Stir well and chill.
  • When ready to serve, pour the remaining simple syrup in a shallow dish. Pour sea salt in a second shallow dish. Then dip the glass rims in simple syrup, followed by sea salt. Add ice to the glasses if desired, and fill a shaker with ice. Add the margarita mix to the shaker and shake for 10-15 seconds - pour into glasses. Garnish the glasses with sliced limes or oranges and serve. Ole'!



For single servings made in a shaker combine: 2 ounces Tequila, 2 ounces lime juice, 1 ounce La Belle, 3/4 ounce simple syrup, 1/3 ounce orange juice, 1/3 ounce Triple Sec.
