Why we love this cocktail-

  • They’re so easy that you can serve them for Cinco De Mayo, or even just taco night. 
  • We love Simply juices and their limeade is no exception. It pairs perfectly with the orange liqueur, and there’s no need to add any simple syrup or agave because the limeade is just sweet enough.
  • While we love a margarita with fresh lime juice, you don’t need it in this recipe, which means you can skip juicing all those fresh limes. This is the perfect lazy, easy margarita recipe.
  • This is such a fun take on a classic cocktail- it is the easiest margarita you will ever make!

FAQs-

What is the difference between a margarita and a margarita on the rocks?

Typically margaritas are blended or “on the rocks” meaning served over ice. You can make them whichever way you prefer.

What is a good substitute for Triple Sec?

You can swap the triple sec for Grand Marnier, Cointreau, curacao (blue curacao for a fun color), or even grenadine in a pinch. The main purpose of this ingredient is to add some smoothness to the drink.
