Margaritas come in every flavour imaginable and every fruit pairs well with tequila. Margaritas are perfect for when you are in the mood for a refreshing and fruity drink with a kick. It’s a timeless and straightforward drink that only requires three ingredients.

Taste: Sweet and sour and salty.

Ingredients for a single serving

  • Tequila
  • Freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Orange Liqueur – Cointreau
  • Agave – (optional)


1. Prep your glass: If you would like to salt the rim of your glasses, simply run a juicy lime wedge around the rim and then dip the rim in coarse salt. Set the glass aside ready to use.

2. Combine the ingredients in a shaker: Combine the tequila, lime juice, orange liqueur, and a few ice cubes in a cocktail shaker. (If you don’t have a cocktail shaker you can stir the ingredients together in measuring cup.

3. Shake shake shake: Give the mixture a good shake or stir for about 10 seconds or until chilled.

4. Taste and add sweetener, if desired: Give the margarita mix a taste and if you think it needs extra sweetener, add in a teaspoon or two of agave (or simple syrup) at a time until the mix reaches your desired level of sweetness.

5. Strain and serve on the rocks: Place a few ice cubes (or I often use one large ice cube so that it will melt more slowly) in the serving glass, then strain the margarita mix over the ice and garnish with a slice of lime.
