Southern Krunk Grilled Lime Margarita- perfectly paired for viewing BBQ Crawl Season 2


One of the funnest moments this year was hanging out with my friends from Southern Krunk. Randy & Andy are great guys who know how to grill and BBQ incredibly well. They are also kings of libations!! Here is their recipe for the best ever margaritas. I only added the grilled limes. They mastered this recipe.

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

Make simple syrup. In a medium sauce pan bring water and sugar together to a boil. Remove from heat once sugar has dissolved thoroughly and chill.
