The classic Tequila Margarita drink has the perfect balance of tequila, triple sec, and lime juice, making it a refreshing cocktail. This is the ultimate Friday night drink to kick back and relax with when friends are over. Choose a high-quality Blanco or silver tequila for the best margarita. Since the recipe only has three ingredients, there’s nowhere for any flavors to “hide.” Quality is important.
- 2 oz Tequila
- 1-2 oz triple sec (opt for Cointreau)
- 1 oz Freshly squeezed Lime Juice
- Garnish: Lime Slice
Run a lime wedge around the rim of a glass and dip in salt. Fill the glass with ice. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. Shake to combine. Strain the cocktail over the prepared glass and garnish with a lime wedge.
