The Perfect Recipe for Making a Classic Margarita

A simple step-by-step process for making a classic Margarita:


  • 2 oz tequila

  • 1 oz triple sec

  • 1 oz fresh lime juice

  • Salt (for rimming the glass)

  • Ice

  • Lime wedge for garnish (optional)


  1. Prepare the Glass:

  • Run a lime wedge around the rim of a margarita glass to moisten it.

  • Dip the moistened rim into salt to coat it. This step is optional, depending on your preference for a salted rim.

  1. Fill the Shaker with Ice:

  • Fill a cocktail shaker with a generous amount of ice. This will help chill and properly mix the ingredients.

  1. Add Tequila:

  • Pour 2 ounces of tequila into the shaker.

  1. Add Triple Sec:

  • Pour 1 ounce of triple sec (orange liqueur) into the shaker.

  1. Add Fresh Lime Juice:

  • Squeeze 1 ounce of fresh lime juice into the shaker. Using fresh lime juice enhances the flavor of the Margarita.

  1. Shake Well:

  • Secure the lid on the shaker and shake the ingredients vigorously for about 10-15 seconds. This ensures that the drink is well-mixed and chilled.

  1. Strain Into Glass:

  • Strain the mixture from the shaker into the prepared margarita glass.

  1. Garnish (Optional):

  • Garnish the drink with a lime wedge on the rim for an extra touch of citrus.

  1. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Your classic Margarita is now ready to be enjoyed! Sip and savor the refreshing flavors.

Feel free to adjust the ratios of tequila, triple sec, and lime juice to suit your taste preferences. Some people prefer a slightly sweeter Margarita, in which case you can add a touch of simple syrup. Cheers!
