*Margarita Mix is fresh lime juice balanced with simple syrup. Lime juice varies greatly day to day in the level of acidity and sweetness. On a perfect day, the mix would be 1 part lime juice to 1 part simple syrup.** When the lime juice is too tart, increase the level of simple syrup. If the lime juice is too sweet, decrease the level of simple syrup.
Remember, when tasting your mix should be a little sweet but tart at the end.
**Simple Syrup: 1 cup sugar simmered in 1 cup water until completely dissolved.
