Pitcher Style Margaritas for a Crowd

  • Author: Pinch of Yum

  • Yield: 8 servings 1x


Pitcher Margaritas for a Crowd – all you need is simple syrup, lime juice, and tequila. These make THE BEST party drinks!


  • 1 part simple syrup
  • 2 parts lime juice
  • 3 parts tequila


  1. Make the simple syrup by boiling water and stirring in an equal measurement of sugar until dissolved (i.e. one cup water + one cup sugar).
  2. Stir the simple syrup, lime juice, and tequila together.
  3. Cut a lime into wedges and use one wedge to wet the rim of the glass. Place salt in a dish and tip the glass upside down into the salt so it sticks to the wet rim.
  4. Add ice cubes to each glass and pour the margaritas into the glasses – these will be strong and a big handful of ice helps balance it all out. We also put the ice right in the pitcher for our last party and that worked fine, too. Place a little lime wedge on the rim of the glass as pictured for looks!


If you use a cup measure as your “part”, you’ll get about 8 servings.

1 cup simple syrup + 2 cups lime juice + 3 parts tequila = 6 cups
6 cups = 1 average-sized pitcher = 8 individual margaritas

It took me about 15-20 small limes to get 2 cups lime juice.

Scale up or down as needed depending on the size of your group!

Store any leftover margaritas in the fridge. Good news: this will keep for quite a while! ๐Ÿ™‚ Just cover the top of the pitcher well so it doesn’t get any weird fridge tastes.
