When it comes to the margarita’s origins, legends abound. But most historians agree that a.) the cocktail came about sometime around the 1940s, and b.) it’s extremely delicious. With just three ingredients, a nice tequila is truly allowed to shine. We love ours with Don Julio. Can’t go wrong with the Don.
- 1 oz. Cointreau
- ¾ oz. fresh squeezed lime juice
- 1 ½ oz. Don Julio Blanco Tequila
How to make a margarita:
Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake, shake, shake, shake, shake. Rim your glass with lime juice and dip it rim-side down onto a plate of salt. Pour your cocktail into a glass with ice and garnish with a lime wedge.
Are margaritas considered a good cocktail?
Indeed they are. Fresh lime juice, nice tequila, and a little bit of orange liqueur? What’s not to love? It’s a little bit sour, a little bit sweet, and a lot delicious.
What’s the best tequila for making margaritas?
We love Don Julio Blanco; it’s a high-quality workhorse that’s equally at home sipped neat or on the rocks, or in a margarita. Casamigos is an excellent choice as well.
Do I have to use Cointreau in a margarita?
A classic margarita does indeed feature an orange liqueur of some kind. But if you don’t like the taste or you don’t have any on hand, simple syrup can work in a pinch.
Can I get margarita delivery near me?
You bet. Just add some Don Julio Blanco, Cointreau, and limes in your Saucey cart and it’ll be on your doorstep before you know it.
