3-ounces silver tequila
2-ounces Triple Sec
1-ounce lime juice (freshly squeezed is always better)
Lime, cut wedge for garnish
Pour salt on a small plate, enough to cover it. Rub a lime slice on the rim of an 8-ounce glass and rotate the rim in the salt to coat the outside. Fill the glass with ice and place in the freezer.
Add tequila, Triple Sec and lime juice to cocktail shaker. Fill the shaker halfway with ice.
Shake vigorously until the outside becomes frosty. Strain into the chilled glass and garnish with a lime wedge.
18-ounces silver tequila (or a bit more, we don’t judge)
12-ounces Triple Sec
6-ounces lime juice (that’s about 6 big-sized limes)
Lime, cut wedges for garnish
Prepare 6 glasses with kosher salt on the rims. Place glasses in freezer (while you wait for your guests to arrive).
Add tequila, Triple Sec and lime juice to a blender. Add ice to fill the rest of the blender. Use “Stir” setting on blender until ingredients incorporate. (Note: You can choose to leave the ice in chunks or blend it even further for icier margaritas.)
When your amigos arrive, pour everyone a glass and garnish with lime. Party on!
Replace lime juice with apple cider (or apple juice) and add a pinch of brown sugar. Garnish with a lime slice and apple slice.
Add 2-ounces of cranberry juice to your favorite margarita recipe and replace half of the ice with frozen cranberries.
