I have a reference about margaritas that recommends lemons instead of limes. Lemons have more consistent quality, it is said.

This is the best Margarita recipe ever. It takes a little planning and a little more time, but they are the best I have ever tasted.

Combine and refrigerate the following for at least four hours (and can be as long as 24 hrs. prior to serving):

4 tsps of lime and lemon zest
1/2 c. lemon and lime juice mixture (I use more lime than lemon)
!/4 c. superfine sugar
Pinch of salt

Strain the juice into a cocktail shaker and add:

1 c. Tequila
1 c. Triple Sec

Shake and pour into glasses with ice.

There isn't a better Margarita to be found!

At least around here, it is all the rage this summer. When I went looking for it recently, the manager of the liquor store told me he's going through 10 cases a week of this stuff!
Yes, I enjoyed a bottle of it, earlier this summer. I had to go to 3 different places over a couple of weeks, in order to find it. I was told that they could not keep it in stock.

mmmm - I like the idea of the lemon/lime zest in there. I will give this one a try, thanks! (maybe less sugar, will compare to other recipes?)

I think you need the 1/4 cup sugar. It is not a sweet margarita. I hate those. I have used splenda before and it tasted great. So I guess you could make your own skinny margarita.

CruisinThru, that recipe sounds really good. I'm going to try it with all lime juice (I like my 'ritas limey).
