A classic Margarita that’s the perfect mix of tart lime, earthy tequila, and bright orange from the Cointreau.




  • 2 oz tequila (I used a Don Julio Reposado for a more rich flavor then blanco)
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz Cointreau
  • 1/2 oz oz simple syrup
  • course sea salt or kosher salt for rim OR a few pinches salt in the shaker
  • lime wheel, garnish


Place salt on the plate. Run a lime wedge around the rim of a rocks glass. Rim it on a plate of salt to coat. Add all of the other ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake. Strain into a glass with ice. Garnish with lime wheel.
