Cocktail Recipe: Margarita
It’s five o’ clock somewhere … And it’s margarita time! When you’re craving a refreshing cocktail, you can turn to this recipe to whip up the classic tequila based drink in no time at all.
Did you know the margarita is thought to have been developed as a variation of another drink of the prohibition era called the “Daisy”? The brandy in the Daisy was swapped for tequila and the lemon juice for lime. And thus a classic was born.
- 50 ml silver tequila
- 30 ml fresh lime juice
- 20 ml orange liqueur
- Salt for the rim of the glass
When making this cocktail, you first need to prep your glass. To do this, you start by placing gourmet sea salt onto a shallow plate. You can use rocks or margarita glasses and rub the rim of the glass with a lime wedge to moisten it. Then dip the rims of the glass into the salt.
In a cocktail shaker, add 50 ml of Silver tequila, 30 ml of fresh lime juice, 20 ml of orange liqueur and a handful of ice. Shake well to combine.
Fill the salt-rimmed glasses with ice and strain the margarita into these glasses. Garnish with a lime wedge, if desired, and enjoy!
When you’re done enjoying your margarita, be aware – these are so good, you’re probably going to start making them by the pitcher.
