This recipe has potential, but the ratios are really messed up. Twelve ounces of limeade concentrate is way too much. It was so tart! I tried to add some corn syrup to correct it, and ended up using about a cup of it, but it was still so sour that it was undrinkable. I choked down a glass of it, then had a stomachache. This was a shameful waste of tequilla and triple sec.

This basic recipe is great! I have a commercial blender so I increased the tequila to 1 cup & the triple sec to about 1/3cup. I also reduced the limeade a bit so that 2 12oz cans made 3 batches. I used fresh cut limes to wet the rim of the glasses before salting, and served them with the lime wedge on the edge of the glass. These were a great hit at 2 office functions...everyone asked for my recipe!

Basic margarita is right. Probably got this off a bottle of Cuervo. Good for those that have no idea what a margarita should taste like.
