The Ultimate Margarita Recipe

In my mind, there’s nothing quite like a good margarita.

I don’t know why, but anytime I’m drinking one, I feel immediately relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated — probably because it immediately transports my mind and body to the beach.

So, in an effort to do just that, below is the ultimate margarita recipe. Cheers!

The Ultimate Margarita Recipe:


Simple syrup:



Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add tequila, lime juice, Simple syrup and orange liqueur. Cover and shake until mixed and chilled — about 30 seconds. Place Lime-salt-sugar on a plate. Press the rim of a chilled rocks or wine glass into the mixture to rim the edge. Strain margarita into the glass.

Simple syrup:

Put the sugar and water in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to one month.


Blend together lime, salt and sugar in a small blender or mini food chopper.
