Classic Lime Margarita

A lime margarita is my absolute favorite cocktail! They are a classic, so easy to make and they’re hard to mess up. They remind me of summertime and beach-y vacations and are easy to enjoy year round.

I love how you can get creative with the flavors as well. My go-to is a classic fresh lime margarita. Though recently I’ve made blended watermelon margaritas and mint watermelon margaritas, yum!

Interestingly enough, contrary to popular belief, margaritas may not have originated in Mexico. There is no definitive answer in terms of where they were first created. There is a lot of folklore that surrounds the origin story of margaritas. Many individuals claim to be the inventor of the margarita. National Geographic has a few accounts of the margarita’s origin story. The article is definitely worth a read!

Simple Margarita Recipe

Serving: 1 cocktail

Ingredients: 

  • 2 ounces 100% Agave Tequila
  • 1 ounce orange liqueur
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • ½ – 1 ounce agave syrup
  • salt

Directions: 

  1. On a shallow dish or plate, add the salt. Using a lime wedge, trace it around the rim of your glass. Make sure you coat the inside and outside of the rim. Then dip the rim of the glass in the salt and twirl it in a circular motion to ensure salt evenly coats the rim.
  2. Next, place ice in your glass and add the tequila, orange liqueur and fresh lime juice. Mix the ingredients together to combine. Then add ½ ounce of agave syrup to start and mix it to combine. Taste the drink to determine whether you’d like to add the remaining agave syrup. Then enjoy!
