Perfecting A Classic: The Margarita


The Classic Margarita // The Shared SipI’m not even embarrassed to admit it: a margarita is one of my favorite cocktails of all time. It’s simple, refreshing and super easy to make, and when the warm weather hits there’s nothing I love more than a marg. Plus: TEQUILA. Is there anything better?

My sister introduced me to this version of the classic, and I’ve never looked back. I’ll skip a fancy margarita for this version any day. The best part: you’ll likely always have the three ingredients on hand which can only mean one thing: margaritas all the timeeee!

The Best Margarita Ever
makes 1 cocktail

  • 2 oz tequila (or mezcal!)
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • .5 oz agave


Rim a rocks glass with lime, then salt (I also love a combination of salt and chipotle chile pepper!); set aside. Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake until very cold, about 20 seconds. Strain into the rocks glass filled with fresh ice; garnish with a lime wedge or wheel. Sip happily.

Barware notes: Rocks glasses are from cb2.
