Toast Margarita or Lemonade

Margarita Toast

To get started, make one pitcher (or more!) of lemonade using this simple recipe:

Fresh Lemonade

Ingredients:

1 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed, or frozen if you prefer)
1 cup sugar dissolved in 1 cup boiling water (this is called simple syrup—the heat allows the sugar to dissolve)

1) Mix both the lemon juice and simple syrup together in large pitcher
2) Then, add four cups of cold water and ice

To Serve: Sometimes we have the lemonade “on the rocks,” sometimes we have ½ lemonade and ½ freshly brewed ice tea for an Arnold Palmer, and sometimes we have half lemonade and ½ Pellegrino (for a lighter lemony sparkling water).

For kids, you can even dip the glass rim in sugar (the kid version of our Margarita salt).

 

Simple Homemade Margaritas

For an adult refresher, follow this recipe (thanks to Carin Canale-Theakston):

Ingredients:

Grab a 12 oz. container frozen limeade
Fill the limeade container as follows:
1 container water
1 container tequila
1 12 oz. bottle Corona beer

1) Mix all together in a large pitcher. Serve in Margarita glasses filled with ice (with or without salted rims).
