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
- 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.
- 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).
- 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.
