Perfect Margarita

Perfect combination of ingredients to create the best margarita on the planet.
Prep Time5 minutes
Course: Drinks
Servings: 1 drink


  • 1.5 oz Tequila
  • 1.25 oz Cointreau {orange liquor}
  • 2.25 oz Lime juice
  • .75-1 oz Simple syrup or Lime Simple Syrup
  • Lime Slices & wedges {garnish & for rim}
  • 1/4 cup Kosher Salt {to rim glass}


  • In a shaker combine tequila, cointreau, lime juice and simple syrup.  Take a lime wedge and run it along the edge of your glass, immediately roll into kosher salt and turn to coat.  Once the glass in ready, add a couple pieces of ice to the shaker and shake for about 20 seconds.  Pour into glass and garnish with a lime slice.


  • I used .75 oz. of simple syrup but if you prefer a sweeter margarita than 1 oz. might be right for you.
  • If you do not have a shaker, than use a mason jar.
  • Coarse sugar can be used in place of the kosher salt.
