  • sugar
  • small pot
  • rimmed plate
  • lime & lemon zest
  • lime juice
  • lemon juice
  • lime wedges
  • orange juice
  • syrup drink (Agave)
  • small pitcher
  • margarita glasses
  • ice


  1. Mix one half cup of sugar and one half cup of water on a saucepan. The heat must be set at medium. Toss in two tablespoons of lime zest and two tablespoons of lemon zest.
  2. The mixture must be brought to a boiling level or temperature. The sugar must be dissolved completely so continue to stir constantly. Take this mixture away from the heat and let it cool down to normal room temperature. The mixture should have made a consistency similar to syrup that is semi-thick.
  3. Incorporate the lime-lemon syrup with one and one half cups of lemon juice, one and one half cups of lime juice, one fourth cup of agave syrup and four cups of orange juice in a pitcher. The container must be placed inside the refrigerator. Let the virgin margarita concoction chill for a period of at least thirty minutes.
  4. Add two teaspoons of salt and one teaspoon of lime zest on a rimmed, small plate. Combine well. The rims of the margarita glasses must be rubbed with the lime wedge. This will moisten the rims. With the rims facing down, dip the margarita glasses on the lime and salt mixture.
  5. Put ice cubes on the margarita glasses. Ensure that these glasses have salted rims. Pour margarita into some glasses. For garnish, use lime wedges. The margaritas must be served immediately.
