The Margarita Ingredients:

  • Tequila
  • Orange liquor
  • Fresh lime juice
  • Fresh orange juice
  • Agave syrup
  • Salt

I find that these ingredients make the best Cadillac margarita recipes, and blended frozen margarita recipes.

You may find that many homemade margarita recipes don’t often include orange juice, and I will explain more on this later. But adding a sweeter citrus fruit to the margarita mixer allows me to cut the agave and orange liquor, saving lots of calories and sugar!

To make Cadillac margarita recipes it’s helpful, though not necessary, to use a cocktail shaker.

If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, just combine all the margarita ingredients into a tall glass and mix the margarita recipe well. Then pour over ice.

The best recipe for margaritas (in my humble opinion) is the Cadillac Margarita… and you don’t need any fancy equipment to make one!
