Freshly squeezed limes are great, but I've found a preservative free organic lime juice that actually works as well and I can just keep a bottle of it in the refrigerator.  It speeds up the drink and reduces mess all at the same time.  "Santa Cruz Organic Lime Juice,"  There are probably others, but that works well for me.

I like Cointreau, but Patron Citronge is a decent cheap alternative.

Finally, Agave syrup is available in most grocery stores now.  It's sold as a low glycemic sweetener and I've been preferring it to simple syrup for reducing the bite of the drink when folks want a sweeter Margarita.

I just skip the liquor altogether and stick with the margarita mix alone. Maybe mix it with some Diet Sprite for a delicious spritzer.

I do have a difficult time finding a margarita mix at the right flavor I like. Something with lots of lime would be good. Add my tequila and triple sec and I'm good.

Or you could just drink rum.

There's a nearby restaurant that has some of the best margaritas I've ever tasted.  They have a serious kick to them, too.  They didn't turn them into girl drinks like most places.

That's because most pre made margarita mixes are garbage. Nature already makes one - limes.

The Buffett margarita is the basis for our house recipe, and it's served us well since 2001. The combination of reposado and blanco tequilas really sets it apart, IMO.

Nothing like sipping on tequila and lime juice on the rocks on a hot summer day.
