The Bubbly Hostess
Story by Heather Sneed, Friend of Seville
My mom’s birthday is in June, so wanted to share with you her favorite margarita recipe!
Typically, Mom is a wine or bubbly drinker, but in the summer, she also loves a good margarita with Mexican food. My dad had a tried and true margarita recipe that he would always make and they are her favorite. She was kind enough to share the recipe – I made it for friends, and they loved it. One of them even said, “Probably the best margarita I have ever had. No joke. Something to be said for family recipes vs. Pinterest recipes!” I was happy to see all of my friends enjoying this concoction.
He used to use Mr. and Mrs. T Margarita mix, but then Costco stopped selling it so he started using their Kirkland Signature Classic Lime Margarita Mix. The tequila? Well, another item you can find at Costco, Hornitos Reposado Tequila.
I hope that you enjoy some of these margaritas with your friends and neighbors. I’d love to hear what you think of them!
Mom’s Favorite Margaritas
12 ounces Kirkland Non-Alcoholic Premium Margarita Mix – Classic Lime (available at Costco)
6 ounces Hornitos Reposado Tequila
4 ounces Triple Sec
4 ounces orange juice
Sliced limes (for garnish)
Combine all of the ingredients into a pitcher, stir to combine. If desired (never done by mom…or dad – no salt on their margarita rims!), wet the rim of the glass with a lime wedge and dip into salt. Fill margarita glass full with crushed ice. Add margaritas and garnish with a slice of lime.
