This recipe is so simple and so easy that we almost feel like it’s cheating to post it. Yet, we wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t share a recipe of such perfection with our readers. This margarita recipe contains only three ingredients…tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. In the past, we would use a margarita mix but now I wonder why margarita mixes even exist?!? I have a conspiracy theory that margarita mix companies have brainwashed the general public into believing that margaritas are a complex, 12-ingredient endeavor. Not so…we are here to reveal that the margarita takes less than 5 minutes to prepare and is the most refreshing of cocktails for a midsummer evening. Enjoy!
Margaritas for Two:
6 ounces (4 shots) Tequila
3 ounces (2 shots) fresh squeezed lime juice
3 ounces (2 shots) Triple Sec (or any other orange liqueur)
In a cocktail shaker combine all ingredients and shake. Strain into an ice-filled tumbler and garnish with a slice of lime. We don’t prefer salted rims but you can use salt if that’s your thing.
