Classic Margaritas Recipe
Oxmoor House
These margaritas are always a favorite. It's definitely worth taking the time to squeeze the limes. If you microwave them for 20 to 30 seconds beforehand, they will release even more juice.

1 cup fresh lime juice (about 5 limes)
1/2 cup orange-flavored liqueur
