Tommy's Classic Margarita Recipe

Toss Aside the Mix! This Margarita Recipe Changes Everything

If it's not made right, the classic margarita will leave me with sugar-coated teeth and strong booze breath. But this isn't the case with the Tommy's Mexican Restaurant's version; rather than using a syrupy orange liqueur, it calls for all-natural (and health-conscious) agave nectar.

The key to making this perfectly is to use the best ingredients possible, from the freshest limes to top-notch reposado, or "rested," tequila. You'll find yourself going back for seconds for a tipple that's refreshing, light-bodied, and balanced. Try something new!
