Homemade Margarita Mix is way better for you than anything you’ll get in the store. Skip the additives, high fructose corn syrup and preservatives in bottled margarita mix by making your own at home. It is even tastier and more fresh and healthy.
Here is the recipe for making your own homemade margarita mix:
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar (I use 1/4 cup sugar instead or substitute it with honey, agave or stevia)
1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (about 8-12 limes)
1. Heat the water on the stove top and then add the sugar. Stir it up until it is well dissolved. Set the mixture aside to cool.
2. Juice your limes. Any simple hand juicer works or you can squeeze them by hand (what a workout!).
3. Combine the sugar-water mixture with the lime juice in a pitcher or container.
The mix is good for 7-10 days in the fridge.
