How to make a good margarita
The best thing about a margarita is that it’s pretty damn easy to make a good margarita. That’s probably why they’re so popular. If you have quality ingredients, it’s pretty hard to get wrong.
- Add a healthy 2-ounce pour of tequila balanced with lime juice, simple syrup and triple sec to a cocktail shaker.
- Shake your margarita. Best done with a huge smile and a bit of dancing.
- Then strain over a rocks glass with a salted rim.
(Himalayan rock salt is the best salt for margarita rim)
The best margarita recipe with cointreau
The best margaritas are made with high-quality blanco tequila, freshly squeezed lime juice, agave syrup, and Cointreau. Like all cocktails, a margarita made with Patron or other premium tequilas, Cointreau and fresh lime juice will taste a helluva lot better.
Careful though. It’s embarrassing if you’re careless and you make a bad margarita. That’s a good way to look like you have no idea what you’re doing. That’s why using a margarita recipe with Cointreau is best. Quality ingredients make your job easier.
