A margarita can be made with tequila and limeade in place of the traditional sour mix, in addition to a slice of lime for garnish. Create a margarita with limeade with help from a professional bartender and bartending instructor in this free video on a limeade margarita recipe.
Hi this is Lauden Vergara, and I am with ABC Bartending Schools here in Miami, Florida. In this clip we are going to show you how to make a limeade margarita. What is a margarita? Well typically a margarita is a Mexican drink made with tequila, triple sec, and sour mix. What is triple sec? Well it's an orange flavored liqueur. Besides that you are going to add some sour mix. Well sour mix is a very concentrated lemon lime with a froth that will give you a nice look to your drink. We are going to make a variation of that. Start off with some ice in your tin, go ahead and put some tequila about four seconds worth of tequila, then we are going to put some limeade. This is going to take the place of your sour mix. You are going to go ahead, and give it a really good shake here, because all of this stuff needs to be mix in together. I am going to go ahead and pour it in, and would you mind adding maybe a little garnish to that. Come up and get your a nice slice of your lime in there, and you have your limeade margarita. Now for the most part it is normally added in already, but what I like to do is I like to add my Cointreau over the top just to give it that nice old orange flavor, and you have got your limeade margarita. Thank you for watching, my name is Lauden.
