Classic Margarita

Notes

The margarita has been riffed on several times over, but being a purist, I'm a fan of the classic recipe. And while "classic recipe" may be debatable, the popular 3-2-1 formula (3 parts tequila, 2 parts lime juice, and 1 part Cointreau) is the one I always go back to. Salt is optional.

If you find this recipe too tart for your taste, the tiniest amount of agave syrup should do the trick.

Classic Margarita

Ingredients

  1. Ice
  2. 1 1/2 ounces 100-percent agave blanco tequila (I use Espolón or Herradura)
  3. 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  4. 1/2 ounce Cointreau

Directions

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the tequila, lime juice, and Cointreau. Shake the ingredients together until chilled, strain into a rocks glass filled with ice, and enjoy!
