Nothing quite beats the original
Grab the lime and the salt, it’s National Margarita day! So let’s celebrate with this Classic Margarita Recipe.
February 22nd is National Margarita Day! So what better way to celebrate Margarita Day than with this Classic Margarita Recipe?
Ah, margaritas! How we love you. They are tangy, tasty, and damn right yummy. And there are so many different variations on this frozen favorite, but nothing quite beats that classic lime margarita taste.
For the longest time, margaritas were the only way I could drink tequila. It is not my favorite liqour, and I don’t think it ever really will be. If it’s taste is not masked in the cocktail, I just can’t drink it.
If tequila isn’t your shot of whiskey either, try drinking it is in a Grapefruit Margarita or a Paloma. The fruity tastes of these cocktails really mask the flavor of the tequila. Especially if you use a cheaper tequila, which taste like feet.
- 1 1/2 Ounces Tequila
- 1 Ounce Triple Sec
- 3/4 Ounce Lime Juice
- Simple Syrup for Added Sweetness if Needed
- Lime Wedge for Garnish

Prep Your Rim: Run a lime wedge around the rim of your glass. Fill a small plate with salt, and dip the rim into the salt. Set glass aside.
