A different Margarita mix

Pwelsh4 | Nov 17, 2012 10:27 PM

So I've been looking for a good margarita mix and noticed that its all basically lime juice mixed with simple syrup aka a sweet and sour mix. That's all fine and dandy but I want to mix it up. The problem with a lot of the pre-made store mixtures and even some restaurant mixes is that its either too limey, not limey enough, has no flavor and so on.

So what I'm trying to do is get away from all that. I was thinking of a good mixture between lemon, lime and orange juice. Its simple, it can be made fresh and it doesn't take that long to make. Also I was thinking of using agave nectar instead of simple syrup for the sweet part of the sweet and sour.

I've found some recipes that use herbs and spices in the simple syrup and mix it with lime juice. I thought was interesting so I wanted to see what everyone could think up in here.

Also I was wondering if anyone has tried Agavero Tequila Liqueur. I'm assuming its fairly new but that doesn't mean people haven't snatched any up yet.
