The good news is that the least expensive tequila makes the best margaritas, but you must use freshly squeezed lime juice.

This is The Barefoot Contessa's margarita recipe. I have made it many times, and I have to agree, it's the BEST! The fresh juices make all the difference.

Her Perfect Margarita recipe says that 1 3/4 cups of tequila is used for a serving of six, but the comments on there said it was to strong. I'd use 1 1/4 cups of tequila for this recipe.

The recipe fails to say how much tequila is needed. 1 Cup? 1 1/2 C? anyone know?
