Best Margarita Recipe?

So my wife an I have been sitting around the house trying to figure out a margarita recipe using fresh limes, quite a fun endeavor for sure. We have already drank a half a fifth of tequila in 30 minutes, so we are not wanting to drink anymore for a little bit. Do any of you have a good recipe using fresh limes? (Ive gotten quite tired of the mix) We came up with (so far)
per drink:
juice of 1 lime
1 1/2 shot of tequila
1/2 shot of triple sec
1 shot of dissolved sugar (1:1 ratio)
1 fresh mint leaf

all blended together then shaken with ice in a martini shaker and put into a salt rimmed martini glass.

Whats your best recipe?

Ok, here's my recipe:

1 lick of salt (preferably off an attractive womans body)
1 shot of the bars seediest tequilla
1 lime wedge (preferably out of an attractive womans mouth)
Repeat until desired effect is attained

Works for me

Cheers

Bill

You could loose the sugar and I might like it better. Depends on the tequila too. Cheap tequila is pretty nasty stuff and you can do anything to it so you can't taste it. The good stuff is a bit spendy but it is one of my favorites. Sipping it straight is good enough for me.

OK how about one for the Frozen crowd....?

1 small can frozen Limeade
3 shots tequila
1 shot triple sec
1 tsp powdered sugar
ice & water (never more than 1/2 of the limeade can) to desired volume / consistency

Blender...
This makes 3 or 4 glasses.. add more tequila for the hearty souls...

P.S. It's important to plan for that blender when figuring your amp-hour consumption!!

Recipe from an old, favorite, long-gone bar in Ensenada, Baja California:

Cut two Mexican limes in half.

Rub one half around the rim of a nice-sized glass. Fill the glass with ice cubes. Squeeze the limes over the ice cubes.

Pour one generous ounce of Tequila into the glass (the better the Tequila, the smoother the drink - trust me, much experience and experimentation with all variables).

Pour one generous ounce of an orange-flavored liqueuer such as Cointreau, Controy (Mexican version), Triple Sec, Gran Marnier, or even Curacao over the cubes.

Pour one half to one ounce of simple bar syrup over the cubes (Google for the proportions of sugar to water).

Stir, sniff the rim, then let the libation flow over your tongue and into your heart.

Be responsible, in all matters that might be affected by this potent and persuasive libation.

Ooop! Forgot to add, "dip lime-wetted glass rim into a plate of salt". You can also add a wedge of lime for color. Using Blue Curacao makes it taste the same, but the color is wave blue and VERY attractive to women.

For the very best, swap out the Triple Sec or Gran Marnier with Cointreau. It's expensive, but REALLY makes a margarita.

1 can of lime-ade, 2 shots of Cointreau, Ĺ corona beer, 1 can of ice. Blend it, then add tequila individually based on the drinkers ability or, just dump a can of tequila on the whole thing. Serve on the rocks.
