Plane Margarita

Hi. I have a question about making the 10 gallons. Do you think he really only puts 1 cup of tequila and 1/8 cup of triple sec? That doesn’t sound like much liquor in that.



Hey Kim, yeah, that part gets a little complicated. What I implied from his recipe was that the alcohol measurements are for each blender batch. So, his recipe for the non-alcoholic part is the base for the 10 gallons of margaritas (many blender-batches), but you add the 1 cup of tequila and 1/8 cup of triple sec for EACH blender-batch. His recipe is not for one batch, but for many.

If you follow our recipe instead of his, you’ll make a single blender-full of the margaritas. Note that in our recipe, there is one cup of tequila and one ounce of Cointreau.

Hope that makes sense. Thanks for the question!

This is a beautifully simple margarita recipe and its refreshing to see something that’s not full of sugar and syrups. Will have to try this out! Nothing beats a margarita on a warm summer’s eve. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
