My favorite classic margarita recipe made with tequila, fresh lime juice, triple sec, and simple syrup.
- 2 ounces blanco or reposado tequila
- 1/2 ounce simple syrup
- 1 ounce lime juice
- 1/2 ounce triple sec or Cointreau
- For the salted rim, take a lime wedge and coat the rim of a margarita glass or double old fashioned glass. Dip in margarita salt, rotating until coated.
- Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with a cup of ice. Shake vigorously and pour straight into a chilled glass with the (now crushed) ice from the shaker. Garnish with a lime wheel.
You can make these in a giant pitcher but the perfect margarita is shaken.
