This Margarita recipe has been in Vicki’s husband’s (Skip) family for two generations. It has been kept a secret this whole time until somehow Vicki convinced Skip to allow us to share it with our bloggers. The origin of the 3-2-1 in the recipe’s title refers to the proportions of the liquids required, however, over time, it has been modified to make a pitcher full. We added hit the floor to the title because they are potent!
Skip’s father’s property in San Diego was filled with lime trees. And, as everyone knows, when life hands you limes, you make Margaritas! This recipe requires lots of fresh limes, but calls for no sugar or syrups, so it is a very clean tasting Margarita. Just be careful how many you drink or … you will hit the floor!
For one pitcher:
- 6 oz. tequila (we use white not gold and it doesn’t have to be expensive)
- 4 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2-3 oz. triple sec (it will be slightly sweeter with 3 oz)
Fill a blender with ice and add ingredients. Blend until ice is crushed, but not fine. Use a lime wedge around the rims of the Margarita glasses to help the salt stick. Pour Kosher salt onto a flat plate and dip the glasses into the salt.
Now let’s raise a glass to Skip and thank him for getting this simple fiesta celebration started!!
