OR you can use Cointreau which is an orange flavored triple sec. I prefer it myself.


Tequila 1 shot which is 1.5 ounces if you do not have a shot glass. Now I am very picky about my tequila and do prefer a white over dark tequila. For that I tend to use Patrón Silver, but you can use what you prefer.

Triple Sec or Cointreau 2/3 shot or 1 ounce

Lime juice 1/2 shot or 0.75 ounce

That is it.

Next, dip your glass into lime juice then into salt on a plate. This will rim the glass with salt that enhances the flavor of the margarita.

Next, add ice, above ingredients into a shaker cup and shake.
