Pitchers of Margaritas always make a room full of people happy. Make the classic Margarita in a large batch with this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 10 ounces lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 14 ounces Cointreau
  • 3 1/2 ounces agave syrup or simple syrup
  • 22 ounces tequila
  • Garnish: lime wheel

Steps

  1. For this recipe, you need a 52-ounce pitcher.

  2. In a 52-ounce pitcher, add the lime juice, then the Cointreau.

  3. Adjust the sweetness with a little agave syrup (2 parts agave nectar, 1 part water) or simple syrup (1 part sugar, 1 part water).

  4. Add the tequila and taste.

  5. The mixture should still be intense because you haven't added any ice yet.

  6. To serve, pour 3 oz of the mixture into a shaker with ice and shake.

  7. Srain into a stemmed Margarita glass with a half-salted rim or a rocks glass filled with fresh ice.

  8. Garnish with a thin lime wheel.

  9. If you have a large shaker or a gallon jar with a screw-top, you can shake a whole bunch of drinks at the same time.
