The Real Deal Holyfield Margarita Recipe by Arizona Lodging Experts

The Real Deal Holyfield Margarita.


Today I am sitting here under a catus enjoying the real deal holyfield margarita, whipped up from scratch by yours truly. I promised in a past blog that I would share my recipe with the world at large. So with no further delay, as promised, for your eyes only, the real deal holyfield margarita.

First of all you’re going to need some supplies, and by supplies I mean some good tequila, some fresh limes, fresh oranges, simple syrup, crushed ice and most of important of all a good blender…-not! No Blender folks, this isn’t a restaurant version of the margarita, served up frozen so as to deaden your taste buds, thus getting you to drink more margaritas and spend more money. We wont be pulling the wool over your eyes here folks. This recipe is for discriminating taste, for the person that enjoys the fine taste of tequila. Were not looking to mask the flavor of the tequila, but enhance it. A good margarita, like any good drink should have a beginning, middle and an end.

For this recipe you are going to need a Boston Shaker. Most liquor stores will carry them, if not try searching the Internet.

For my recipe I’m using a modest $30 bottle of Corralejo tequila.

Add 1.5 oz of tequila 1

1.0  oz simple syrup (Simple syrup is 2 parts sugar to 1 part water. Heat up water, add sugar, and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool, bottle and place in fridge)

1.5 oz mixed fresh lime and fresh orange juice (equal parts)


Take your serving glass and place crushed ice inside to get your glass nice and frosty.


Fill Boston shaker half full of crushed ice.


Add in all of your ingredients.

Put the shaker together and give it a good shaking.


I will shake my margarita for no less then 100 shakes.  When your done your boston shaker should be frosty.

Strain and pour your mixed drink into your serving glass.


Now if this isn’t the best margarita you’ve ever had let me know. The Phoenix Rental Management team looks forward to your responses.

I hope that some of our guest at Arizona Lodging Experts, when staying in one of our luxury vacation homes will take the time to try this recipe out while having a pool party. Iguarantee it will be a smash! And remember if you need a bartender to mix the drinks for you just let me know, I look quite smashing in a Speedo.
