The Guy Corner NYC Margarita

A margarita is a cocktail consisting of tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice often served with salt on the rim of the glass though I like it clean. The drink is served shaken with ice (on the rocks), blended with ice (frozen margarita), or without ice (straight up). Although it has become acceptable to serve a margarita in a wide variety of glass types, ranging from cocktail and wine glasses to pint glasses and even large schooners, the drink is traditionally served in the eponymous margarita glass, a stepped-diameter variant of a cocktail glass or champagne coupe.


2 oz. fresh squeezed limes
1 oz. Simple syrup
1 oz. Luxardo Triplum Triple Sec
3 oz. Tres Agaves Blanco Tequila


  1. Get a Margarita glass (if you cant find one use a martini glass, that is what I use). place it in the freezer while you make your drink.
  2. In a shaker, add 2 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice, 1 oz. simply syrup. 1 oz. Luxardo Triplum Triple Sec, 3 oz. Tres Agaves Blanco Tequlia and ice. (See below how to make your own simple syrup).
  3. Shake well and serve in that ice cold glass. Enjoy!

To make your own simple syrup, add equal parts extra fine sugar and water (measured) into a pot. Heat the syrup on low and stir until fully dissolved. Once dissolved let it cool and out it in a glass bottle with lid in the fridge. This can last up to 3 months in the fridge.
