The Hello Tech Pros 3-2-1 Margarita

As any avid listener of the Hello Tech Pros podcast will tell you, you need a stiff drink before listening to me as a guest. Just witness my border-line fever dreams about the Internet of Things on my last guest appearance in the episode entitled “Programming Is Like The Most Epic Video Game Ever.” Due to the result of some frankly questionable decision-making, Chad Bostick invited me back onto the show for the as-of-yet-unaired episode likely entitled “Jared Ruins My Podcast.” In it, I promised a recipe to my infamous 3-2-1 margarita. Well, here it is. Enjoy.


  • 3 cups 100% Agave tequila
  • 2 cups triple sec
  • 10-12 limes
  • Ice (about 4 cups)
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 quart pitcher
  • Stirring stick
  • Margarita glasses (aka any liquid-holding vessel)


  1. Cut all limes in halves and squeeze juice into container (should make about a cup)
  2. Save a couple halves of limes for salted rim
  3. Pour ice into pitcher to the top
  4. Pour tequila in pitcher
  5. Pour triple sec into pitcher
  6. Pour lime juice into pitcher
  7. Stir pitcher contents
  8. Put half an inch of salt into shallow bowl
  9. Rub lime around rim of margarita glass and roll in salt
  10. Pour pitcher contents into margarita glass
  11. Enjoy!
