Scratch Margarita

There is nothing worse than a bad margarita. I'm sorry to say I have had my fair share. I am always reluctant to order them because most often they are made with a super tart mix that is just plane gross. So when I find a good one I want to tell everyone about it.

I went on a road trip with my sister and niece recently and found this lovely margarita at a Mexican restaurant in a tiny little town called Moscow, Idaho. They called it a scratch Margarita and it was made with fresh squeezed lime and orange juice. I instantly fell in love and have recreated it the best I could. Its a perfect combination of sweet, tart and salt. Try it and let me know what you think. 


Juice of 1 lime
Juice of 1 orange
1 1/2 ounce tequila
1 ounce triple sec
salt to rim the glass
Ice for shaker and for glass


Pour all ingredients into shaker with some ice. Shake well and pour over ice. It makes enough for one drink.


  1. Ohhhhhhhhh, I love a fruity cocktail. Maybe that's what I need to get me through wrapping presents!

  2. Andrea, My Dear! I just made two of these today for myself and my nephew Adrian and we went mad over them! Cocktail Heaven, and so surprisingly easy to make!

    Thank you for this!

    1. I'm so glad you liked them. My sister is not easy to please with cocktails and she says it is the best margarita she has ever had. I'm glad you guys are enjoying them as much as us.
