Ingredients
  1. 1/4 cup water
  2. 6 ounces tequila
  3. 2 ounces Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
  4. 1 orange, peeled and halved
  5. 1 lime, peeled and halved, plus another lime*
  6. 1 lemon, peeled and halved
  7. 6 tbsp agave nectar or raw sugar
  8. 6 cups ice cubes
  9. 1/2 cup salt*
Instructions
  1. (First step: Create salt-rimmed glasses.*)
  2. Place all ingredients into Vitamix container as listed and place lid on. Blend just under a minute, using tamper to push ingredients into blade as necessary. Divide equally into salt-rimmed glasses*.
Notes
  1. *To rim the glasses with salt, you need two things; 1) two containers that are at least 1/2" high that will fit the diameter of the glasses, and 2) another lime. Start by juicing the lime (cut it in half and squeeze into the 1/2" container). Next, pour the salt around the inner edge of the second container.
  2. This process takes two steps. Begin by turning the glass upside down, then dipping it into the lime juice and turning it a few inches either direction. Then lift it straight up. You're essentially creating the "glue" that will hold the salt. After the lime juice, immediately dip the the lime juice-rimmed glass into the salt, turn a couple inches, then lift up. Then immediately turn right-side up.
  3. And keep in mind, do this BEFORE pouring the finished margarita blend into the glass. : )
  4. Additional Note: To release extra juice from the lime, place onto cutting board or countertop and roll back and forth, exerting medium pressure on lime.
