This is the best margarita pitcher recipe! It’s quick and easy to make for serving a crowd, and has the perfect tangy flavor with no added sugar.



  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 4 limes)*
  • 1 cup Cointreau
  • 1 1/2 cups tequila blanco or reposado


  1. Juice the limes and lemons. Mix them together with the Cointreau. Go to Step 2 or refrigerate until you’re ready to serve.
  2. Pour the lemon lime mixture into a pitcher with the tequila. Add 3 handfuls of ice and stir until cold. Pour into glasses and serve. 


*The quantities are easily doubled for a larger crowd to make 16 drinks.
