The Perfect Margarita

Perfect Margarita

When I was pregnant with my son, I was craving a margarita– of course I didn’t want one in January after he was born!! 🙂 A margarita is the perfect warm weather cocktail– especially with guacamole. Although I am usually pleased with any margarita, this is our favorite recipe– a blend of many. We have simplified it recently to use agave nectar in place of simple syrup– so much easier when making just one or two cocktails.

  • 1 1/2 oz tequila
  • 3/4 oz cointreau or triple sec
  • 1 1/2 T lime juice
  • 1/2 T simple syrup or agave nectar
  • coarse salt
  • ice
  1. Place all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Serve on the rocks in lime juice and salt rimmed glasses.
  3. Enjoy!
