Margs by the Pitcher
14 ounces Cointreau
10 ounces lime juice, freshly squeezed
3 1/2 ounces agave syrup or simple syrup
22 ounces tequila
Garnish: 12 lime wheels
To a 52-ounce pitcher, add the Cointreau and lime juice and stir to combine.
Add the agave or simple syrup followed by the tequila. Stir to combine, then taste. (The flavor should be intense, since the drink hasn’t yet been diluted with ice.)
To serve, pour 4 ounces of the mixture at a time into a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled. (If you have a large shaker or a gallon jar with a screw-top, you can shake several drinks at the same time.)
Strain into a stemmed Margarita glass with a half-salted rim or a rocks glass filled with fresh ice.
Garnish with a thin lime wheel.
Yield: 12 servings
