TH Taste: Margarita recipe
Former Texas Highways editor Frank Lively was known for his puckery and potent margaritas, made with equal parts tequila, triple sec, and fresh lime juice—shaken, strained and served like a martini. But now that a Texas company, Paula’s Texas Orange, makes an orange liqueur, we recommend switching out the triple sec for a splash of Paula’s.
Here’s the classic margarita recipe from Paula’s Texas Orange:
Shake with ice, strain, and serve.
You can add a bit of sugar if the limes are particularly tart.
