Note: Agave nectar is a sweetener made from agave cactus. Since it is about 11⁄2 times sweeter than sugar, you may need less agave nectar. It can be found on the sugar aisle at your local supermarket.



    • Hi Nancy, thanks for making us aware of this issue. We have added the note to the bottom of the recipe. It’s not too terribly important. Enjoy the margaritas!
