Today, I’m excited to share my recipe for homemade margarita mix. It’s insanely easy to make (with only two ingredients, plus water!).
The difference between homemade margarita mix and something you buy at the store is kind of insane, though. Sometimes the store-bought mixes can be syrupy and gross. Homemade tastes SO much fresher.
Totally worth the effort! Here’s the quick little video I made showing exactly how to make your own margarita mix and margarita.
Homemade margarita mix ingredients:
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cup fresh lime juice (about 10 limes)
Squeeze the lime juice into a bowl or measuring cup. I love this handy tool for juicing lemons and limes.
Heat the water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved. Let the mixture cool a bit before adding in the lime juice. Mix together and pour into a glass carafe or mason jar.
Refrigerate the mix for up to two weeks.

It’s super simple! Don’t forget to salt your rim and try a lime-flavored salt if you’d like.
This homemade margarita mix is perfect for parties. You can easily tweak the proportions to make a large or small batch depending on how many you’ll be serving!
You could even use a cast iron pot like this when making a bigger batch of mix.
Can I Make Different Flavors of Margarita Mix?
Yes! You can make different variations of this recipe by using grapefruit juice, orange, or cranberry juice instead of lime juice. You can even make your own strawberry margarita mix.
So many options! Don’t be afraid to experiment.
