Bring a taste of sunny Mexico into your own kitchen with this basic recipe for making the best ever margarita!


ounces Tequila (Reposado gives the best flavor, but any will do)
ounce Triple Sec (Look for Cointreau, or any orange-flavored liqueur)
ounce Fresh lime juice
teaspoons Superfine sugar


  • 1 Get your glasses ready before you start mixing the margarita. Use a lime wedge to wipe around the rim of the glass, and dip the glass into a saucer of salt.
  • 2 Add all ingredients to a cocktail shaker, and tip in a cup of ice. Cover and shake for a few seconds. Pour margarita into the prepared glass over ice.
  • 3 Variations: Mix in blended fruit or other juices to change the flavor and color of your margarita. Strawberry margarita: Substitute the fresh lime juice for 1 1/2 oz of limeade, and add a handful of strawberries into the mix. Use frozen strawberries and mix ingredients in a blender to create a frozen strawberry margarita. Blue margarita: Use blue curaçao in place of triple sec to create a blue margarita cocktail with a very similar taste.
