A Margarita is one of the most popular cocktails. Combining the tartness of lime and the sweetness of orange liqueur with the distinctive strength of tequila, the classic Margarita strikes all of the right keys.

Although many people reach for premade sour mix, we highly recommend using fresh lime juice. The end result is much better.

In our opinion, this version is the tried-and-true recipe for the best Margarita you can make. Memorize it, and you’ll always impress.


60 ml Blanco tequila

30 ml Fresh lime juice

15 ml Orange liqueur/ Triple Sec

15 ml Agave syrup/ Sugar Syrup

Garnish: Lime wheel

Garnish: Salt


Add all the ingredients into a shaker with ice, and shake until chilled.
