Margarita

Recipe: Margarita (serves one)

  • 1 1/2 oz. silver tequila
  • 1 1/2 oz. fresh lime juice
  • 1 oz. Cointreau
  • Salt and lime wedge for rim
  • Lime wheel for garnish

Rub rim of glass with lime wedge. Pour some salt onto a plate and rim the glass with it. Add ice to prepared glass. Shake liquid ingredients vigorously with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into glass, and garnish with lime wheel.


This is a classic margarita recipe, with a delicious blend of tequila, lime, and orange liqueur. If you prefer your margaritas sweeter, add 1 tablespoon super fine sugar. If you love margaritas, you should also check out the lesser known precursor, the sidecar.

For a lemon margarita, simply replace the lime juice with lemon juice.

The tequila. We like to use Camarena silver tequila.
