Margarita | Mexico


Ingredients

 

  • 2 ounces tequila (silver or reposado is the best)
  • 1/2 ounce orange liqueur
  • 1 ounce lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 ounce agave syrup
  • Garnish: lime wheel
  • Garnish: kosher salt (optional)

 

 

Preparation

 

  1.  If you'd like to salt the rim of your glass, run a juicy lime wedge around the rim, then dip the rim in coarse Kosher salt, and set aside.

  2. Combine your tequila, lime juice, orange liqueur, syrup, and a few ice cubes in a cocktail shaker.

  3. Then give the mixture a good shake until it is combined and chilled.

  4. If you think it needs extra sweetener, add in a teaspoon or two of agave at a time until it reaches your desired level of sweetness.

  5. Garnish with a slice of lime.
