It’s official.

Juicy Peach Margaritas I howsweeteats.com

I’ve become a giant margarita snob.

I can’t drink any others.

Don’t even show me that green stuff in a bucket.

Just make one of these.

I know you want to.

Dooooo it.

Juicy Peach Margaritas

recipe for one margarita, can easily be multiplied

2 ounces Grand Marnier

1 1/2 ounces Tequila

2 ounces lime juice

2 1/2 ounces peach simple syrup [recipe below]

lime + chopped peaches for garnish

salt + sugar for the rim

Rim the ridge of your glass with a lime wedge and dip in a mix of margarita salt + sugar [I used about 3 tablespoons salt to 2 teaspoons sugar]. Fill the glass with ice. In a cocktail shaker, combine tequila, grand marnier, simple syrup and lime juice with ice, and shake for about 30 seconds. Pour over ice and squeeze in lime slices and add a few peach chunks.

For peach simple syrup: combine equal parts sugar and water, bring to a boil and let sugar dissolve, then turn off heat and let cool completely. Combine 1 cup simply syrup + 3 peeled and chopped peaches in a blender and blend until combined. This makes enough simple syrup for 3-4+ margaritas, so I suggest playing with the amounts once you know how much syrup you like in your drinks!

This recipe can be easily doubled, quadrupled, etc. Since everyone’s tastes differ, add simple syrup 1/4 cup at a time and go from taste. I also suggest buying the lime juice if you plan on making a pitcher (or 2) considering you’d have to squeeze a billion limes to get enough juice.

    Oh I want one soooo bad. The worst part of being pregnant in the summer (besides the heat) is not being able to enjoy a nice cold adult beverage. And I DOOO love peaches!

    My fave margaritas are fruitier ones..like peach or mango. This looks sooo good!

    Grand Marnier is the perfect complement, too, to peaches and mangoes. YUM!

    The suns not even up, and I feel an urge to make a peach marg. I don’t know how I should feel about that, and frankly, I don’t care. Ppl drink mimosas w/ breakfast, why not margs??? Exactly. I’ll just eat some pancakes with them or something.

    Officially obsessed. Made these last night, may or may not have consumed 4… :)

    I substituted Splenda in the simple syrup – dissolves so quickly so even have to boil and gave me more of an excuse to drink more (which I did, duh) ;)

    You complete me.
