How to Make a Margarita

In this post I want to show you how to make a Margarita cocktail. A good Margarita is smooth and refreshing. Perfect for anytime of the year.

You can make a Margarita with syrup and/or agave. I like mixing the lime juice with sugar and water instead of making a syrup. This works beautifully.

Try and use Triple Sec such as Cointreau for a great Margarita.

This is what you are going to need for an exquisitely smooth Margarita:

Makes one
1 lime wedges
Sea or kosher salt
6 ice cubes
2½ oz. lime juice and sugar
1½ oz. tequila
¼ oz. Triple Sec or Cointreau

Place the salt on a small dish. Rub the edges of your glass with the lime wedge and dip it into the salt. Do not overdo it.

Place the ice in a cocktail shaker and add the lime juice, tequila and triple sec. Shake well and pour into the prepared glasses.

FOR THE LIME JUICE & SUGAR:
¼ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
2 TBS sugar
1/3-cup water

Mix the lime juice, sugar and water in a small measuring cup. Mix until all sugar is dissolved. Refrigerate in a closed container until you ready to make your Margaritas. You will have enough for two cocktails.
