A good classic margarita recipe is a difficult thing to come by these days. Everyone has their personal margarita preferences–flavored margaritas, skinny margaritas, frozen margaritas, beer margaritas, and even some prefer margarita cupcakes or ice pops. The simple lime flavor seems to be a hit with almost everyone.

Is this a strong margarita recipe?

You could–but I’m not sure if it would be a bit too sweet without the tequila to mellow it out. Maybe cut back on the sweetener and taste it first if you’d like to make a virgin margarita,
