No need to shell out big bucks for this margarita. It’s delicious and will run you about $2 per drink. The folks at ProbablyThis.com put together this delicious recipe together for anyone looking to score a deal while not skimping on taste.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 750mL bottle of Tequila Espolon (approximately $25)
  • 1 24 oz bottle of agave nectar ($9)
  • 12 oz lime juice, from about 12 limes ($4)


  • 1 1/2 oz Tequila
  • 1/2 oz agave
  • 3/4 oz lime juice
  • Lime wedge for wetting the rim and for garnish, later
  • Salt for the rim of the glass, to taste


  1. First, add salt onto a plate
