Lemon-Lime Margarita. A classic margarita gets a double citrus punch by mixing equal parts lemon and lime for a refreshing and delicious drink to wash down any Mexican meal.
This margarita started it’s life as a classic lime margarita, but while I was making it I noticed some lemons in my fruit bowl that needed to be used, so I squeezed an equal amount of lemon juice to lime juice and I liked it.
When it came to salting the rim the drink looked washed out (from a photographic stand point) so I grated lemon and lime zest into the salt and I what I got was a lovely decorative drink.
Cinco de Mayo is almost here and where I hear it’s not a thing in Mexico, it most certainly is here in the U.S. and more so in Southern California (which borders Mexico).
This week is a Mexican themed menu in my house. Check out the other recipes from this weeks Cinco de Mayo collection, baja style tacos, signature guacamole and salsa. All can be seen in the pic below.

This is just like Miguel’s Mexican restaurants signature margarita! I love it! Made twice now after having one not long ago! Thank you!
I had no idea, thank you for letting me know I’m glad you enjoyed it.
I made this for Cinco de Mayo and I love the lemon lime combo, so much better than just lime. It’s my new go-to marg.
I’m so glad you like it. The lemon-lime combo is my favorite too.
