Lemon Curd, Nectar of the Gods
Do you need to use Premium Ingredients for this Lemon Curd margarita?
I would usually say yes, and to some degree, I still say yes, but when you make a flavored margarita like this lemon curd margarita, it’s okay to be less particular with the ingredients because the fruit, lemon curd or other flavors masks the premium taste.
However, personally, I can still taste the difference, but that’s because I’ve had a few margaritas in my life.
Yes, just a few.
OKAY, OKAY, I’ve had buckets and buckets of them.

The Ingredients for the Lemon Curd Margarita and the Mixing
Front and center is the lemon curd, then tequila, Cointreau, lime juice and lemon juice.
Do you need to sweeten this Lemon Curd Margarita?
No. Lemon curd is sweet, so, in my opinion, it would be too sweet if you added simple syrup. Make it as is and if you think it needs more sweetener, add simple syrup.
Below is the collage of process shots for this lemon curd margarita. After measuring out each ingredient, I add it to the blender. I start by adding the lemon curd.
Then I add:
- Lemon juice
- Lime juice
I take a long spoon and stir everything together, making sure the lemon curd has incorporated. The reason I do this is because I’m using a ninja blender where the blades are on the lid. Sometimes the blades need help reaching the lemon curd.
If you use a regular blender, the ingredients will go in the bottom where the blades are, so you won’t have to stir it.
I put in 1 1/2 cups or 2 cups of ice and turn the blender on high.
Pour the Lemon Curd Margarita
I pour the contents of the blender into the margarita glasses and place lemon slices on the side of each glass as garnish.
