Easy Peasy Margaritas

Preparation Time: 1 minute
Make: 1 cocktail

Despite the tequila pictured, I wouldn’t go top shelf with your selection here — just something 100% agave! Hornitos, 1800 and El Jimador are a few of my faves.


Cake Batter:

  • 1 ounce (28 grams or 2 tablespoons) tequila
  • 12 ounce (14 grams or 1 tablespoon) Cointreau
  • 6 ounces (170 grams or 34 cup) Trader Joe’s Sparkling Limeade or similar sparkling lime soda
  • Ice


Combine tequila and Cointreau in a cocktail shaker or Mason jar with a cube of ice. Cover, shake and strain into a glass filled with several cubes of ice. Pour sparkling limeade over top, stir gently and serve.
