A margarita recipe that's as easy to make (and remember) as counting to 3. This drink packs a punch and plenty of tart lime flavor. Add jalapeño to make it a spicy margarita!
*To make simple syrup: Stir together 1 cup of water with 1 cup of granulated sugar in a microwave-safe measuring glass and microwave for 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has completely dissolved. You can also do this in a saucepan on the stove, using medium-low heat.
**To make a spicy margarita: Muddle jalapeño slices with lime juice before adding tequila and simple syrup. Use about 1/8th of a jalapeño for a mild margarita, or 1/4 for a spicier margarita. Add a Tajín or chili salt rim for an extra kick of heat!
For pitcher margaritas: Scale this recipe to accommodate the size of your pitcher. A basic 60-ounce pitcher will use 30 ounces of tequila, 20 ounces of lime juice, and 10 ounces of simple syrup.
