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
- Don Julio Blanco Tequila
- 4 limes sliced
- Kosher salt mixed with zest of lime.
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.
Add 1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice to chilled simple syrup.
Mix 2 cups lemon juice/simple syrup mixture to 1 cup Julio Blaco Tequila. Add in 1/2 cup Cointreau. Set aside to chill in fridge.
Prepare your grill for medium high direct heat. Grill limes for 2-3 minutes until grill marks appear. Remove from heat and set aside.
Rim cups with a slice of grilled lime then salt.
Shake over ice and pour into cups.
Add an additional squeeze of grilled lime. Shake and enjoy
Remember to cocktail responsibly.
