Thursday Cocktailing // Must-have Margaritas!

Alright party people, it’s time for our second installment of Thursday Cocktailing and this week we have a gooood one for you.  So good in fact, Lauren passed out at 8 p.m. Sunday night testing it out and woke up Monday morning with a substantial hangover.  What a way to start the week!  So stick to drinking this delish marg on Fridays & Saturdays, ok? (Or don’t say we didn’t warn you!)

If there’s one thing the Chic & Awe cocktail-lovin’ duo can always get behind it’s Mexican! The chips, the guac, and of course, the margaritas!  We’re not talking about sketchy neon green margaritas with suspect ingredients either! This recipe comes from Andrew, Lauren’s husband, who is a master cocktail maker – you’d marry him too with the drinks he can bust out. FOR REALS. He’s typically a non-measurer, but we made him nail down his special recipe just for our Chic & Awe readers!  You’re welcome ;-)

The Must-Have Margarita

-Fill a large cocktail shaker half full with ice (our shaker is on the bigger side, it’s 11” tall and holds 28 oz.)
-Add 4 shots/6 ounces of tequila (we use Sauza Gold on the regular)
-1 cup of Limeade
-1/4 cup Orange Juice
-1/4 cup Triple Sec
-Fresh squeezed juice from two limes
-1/8 cup simple syrup (it's so easy, definitely make your own!)

Shake it up and serve over ice with rimming salt! Don’t forget to garnish with a lime wedge or two.

This should make 4 margaritas, or 2 if you’re the Egurens ;-)
