Total time: 10 minutes | Makes 12 margaritas

Sweet and sour mix

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 cups lemon juice
  • 2 cups lime juice

Step 1In a glass or nonreactive container, stir together the sugar and orange juice until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the lemon juice and lime juice. This makes about 5 1/2 cups mix, which will keep, covered and refrigerated, up to 1 week. Shake or stir before using.

  • 1½ cups orange liqueur, preferably Cointreau
  • 3 cups prepared sweet and sour mix
  • Coarse sea salt, for rimming the glasses
  • Lime wedges, for garnish

Step 1In a pitcher filled with ice, combine the tequila, orange liqueur and sweet and sour mix, stirring to combine. To serve, pour into salt-rimmed glasses filled with ice, garnishing each cocktail with a lime wedge.
