What is the difference between a margarita and a Texas margarita?

A margarita is a combination of tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. Anyway, my research revealed that there is not a single definition of what non-Texans call a Texas margarita. Some call for adding as much orange juice as lime juice. Some call for adding orange juice and beer.

Keeping this in consideration, what is in a margarita?

2 oz Tequila 1 oz Lime juice 1 oz Cointreau

Also, what is a scratch margarita? We would order “scratch margaritas,” meaning made with fresh squeezed juices rather than sweet and sour. Sweet and sour, unless you go to a really nice place that makes its own, is just sugar, maybe some actual juice, or often just artificial flavors, and water. Here is my favorite version of a scratch margarita.

Likewise, how strong is a margarita?

Using the original recipe and an 80-proof tequila along with Cointreau, the margarita would not be considered a low-proof cocktail. It typically comes out around 23 percent ABV (54 proof). If you serve it on the rocks, it will dilute a bit over time.

How many calories are in a Texas margarita?

Per drink: 460 calories, 1 gram protein, 45 grams carbohydrates, no fiber, no fat, no cholesterol, 80 milligrams sodium.
