Classic Margarita

Strip away all the bells and whistles. Want a margarita you can make from scratch in a few minutes? Look no further.

Classic Margarita
1 1/2 oz silver or reposado tequila
1 oz Grand Marnier orange liqueur
3/4 oz fresh squeezed Mexican lime juice
Splash of orange juice

Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into a salt-rimmed cocktail glass and serve with a lime wedge.

If you don't use Mexican limes, add a tsp or so of sugar.

  1. A good twist is to pull out the splash of orange juice and squeeze in a whole clementine. The fresh fruit taste really adds to the drink.
