Classic Margarita Recipe

Classic Margarita Cocktail Recipe

The classic Margarita recipe is a simple 3:2:1 ratio of strong, sour and sweet. No need for adding extra simple syrup as the sugar content of the triple sec/Cointreau balances the sour. Margaritas are a party drink so I like to serve them in an old fashioned glass over ice!

  • 45 mL Blanco Tequila 1½ oz
  • 15 mL Triple Sec ½ oz
  • 30 mL Fresh Lime Juice 1 oz


  • Rim the glass with salt - moisten the glass with a piece of lemon or lime and place upturned onto a plate of salt
  • Combine all ingredients into your cocktail shaker
  • Shake with ice
  • Strain into a chilled coupe or margarita glass
  • Garnish with a lime wedge or wheel


Tip:- Keep all your guests happy by only rimming half the glass with salt – just in case they don’t like it.
