My mom makes margaritas all the time, and all summer that's what I've been craving. My friend Kait is coming over, and so I made margaritas. A pitcher. A small pitcher, since I only had a few limes. This is a super thing for your 4th of July party!

Small pitcher margaritas
Can be doubled, tripled, etc.

1 c lime juice, fresh squeezed
1 c tequila
1/2 c triple sec
1/2 c simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water)
lots and lots of ice cubes
salt and/or sugar for rimming glasses
an extra lime, halved, for rimming glasses

Mix lime juice, tequila, triple sec and simple syrup in a small pitcher. Rub the cut side of the lime on each glass and then dip in a small plate with salt or sugar. Fill the glass with ice cubes, then with margaritas.
