The BEST Margarita Recipe EVER!

Happy almost Friday!  I’m linking up with Holly over at Osborn Extravaganza for another edition of Happy Hour and today, I have the perfect recipe for you….


the BEST margarita you will ever try!

It’s no surprise to anyone around here that I love Margaritas.. I mean, I could have one every night along with queso!

I even had it last night for a quick happy hour with girlfriends! 😍

Now, if you don’t have time or the ambition, these pre-made ones are a huge favorite -I legit buy these all the time during summer for a quick drink over ice BUT if you have ambition then you need to make these ones below!

Have you ever heard of Paula’s Texas Spirits? It’s located in Austin, TX but you can order it online or check your local liquor store to see if it’s distributed by you!  I tried this recipe after reading all about it on the Fancy Ashley blog.  She’s the cutest thing and her drink recipes never disappoint!

If you don’t have Paula’s near you… and don’t have an interest in ordering it, you can substitute it with any comparable orange liqueur and you’re set!

Paula’s Margarita Recipe *recipe from the back of the bottle

1 oz. Premium Tequlia

1 oz. Paula’s Texas Orange (or a comparable orange liqueur)

1/2 oz. Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice

1/2 oz. Water

Add ice and shake, shake, shake!

*Recipe makes one margarita.

If you’re making these for a party ahead of time, I totally loved Ashley’s tip on using mason jars!  Again, no surprise I’m sure since I use mason jars for everything BUT she recommended pouring all the ingredients into a half pint ball jar  and cover with a lid.  You do not need to refrigerate them after putting them together.

When guests arrive, just add some ice to each mason jar, cover and shake it up!  Add a lime with a festive straw and you’re set! 🙂

I should have taken pictures while making mine but since I didn’t know if I’d like it, I skipped those. Next time, I’ll document my mixing!

So, if you’re getting ready for a fun Cinco de Mayo party, you should definitely give these a try!  And if you do, let me know how you like them!

What’s your favorite Cinco de mayo or margarita recipe?! I’m always looking for a good margarita 🙂
