Tequila, orange, liquor, lime: Fresh, crisp flavors are essential to the perfect margarita. We chose these proportions after testing all of the other ones.



  • 1 lime wedge and 2 lime wheels for adornment
  • 1 tablespoon coarse salt, for upper part of glasses
  • ½ cup (120ml) blanco tequila of superior quality
  • ¼ cup (60ml) Cointreau
  • 1/6 cup (40ml) 2 limes, fresh juice



  1. Two rock glasses should have a lime wedge run around the outside rims before being salted. Place the glasses aside.
  2. Tequila, Cointreau and lime juice should all be combined in a cocktail shaker. Shake until totally cooled, about 15 second after addition of ice (the bottom of a metal shaker should frost over).
  3. Place fresh ice in glasses, next pour the margarita into each glass. Garnish with lime wheels.


Equipment Required

Cocktail shaker, cocktail strainer



High-quality tequila works best with this recipe. Change the ratios for the Cointreau and lime juice if you are less expensive brand-they are usually a little sharp. Add ½ tablespoon of simple syrup to each drink instead.

It is also important to add that to balance the acidity of lime juice, a high-quality tequila needs no sugar other than what is found in the triple sec.

Also, Cointreau creates a balanced, smooth margarita without diluting the tequila.
