Margarita Cocktail

There are countless stories that claim to herald the origin of the Margarita, and to the best of my knowledge none of them have been definitively identified as the real one. Go ahead and debate this topic amongst yourselves if you wish, but in this episode we will instead focus on how to make a proper Margarita using silver tequila, Cointreau, and fresh squeezed lime juice.


Tequila 2 Ounce
Cointreau 1 1/3 Ounce
Fresh lime juice 2/3 Ounce
Lime wedge 1
Ice cubes 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Salt 1 Teaspoon



Shake tequila, cointreau and lemon juice with ice.

Rub the rim of glass with lime wedge and sprinkle salt over it by holding glass upside down (half of rim)

Strain into cocktail glass.

Garnish with lime wedge.


Serve and enjoy!
