How to make The Margaritas by the Pitcher Cocktail

For this recipe you need a 52-ounce pitcher

First, add the fresh lime juice and then the Cointreau

Have a taste—it should still be a bit tart

You can add a little more Cointreau but not much

Adjust the sweetness with a little agave syrup (two parts agave nectar, one part water) or simple syrup (one part sugar, one part water) but don't use more Cointreau, which would change the balance of the drink

Add the tequila and taste

The mixture should still be intense, because you haven't added any ice yet

When a guest wants a drink, pour 3 ounces of the mix into a shaker and fill with ice

Shake, and strain into a stemmed Margarita or cocktail glass with a half-salted rim or a rocks glass filled with fresh ice

Garnish with a thin wheel of lime

If you have a large shaker or a gallon jar with a screw-top you can shake a whole bunch of drinks at the same time

    Worst recipe ever. This was like drinking kerosine. I had to toss it. I followed the recipe twice to be sure and both times I could have spit fire. I was better off using another recipe for one Margarita and then dumping into a pitcher for a party. Way too much liquor in this recipe and it takes the taste away from a real Margarita.
