Here’s how you make it
I love a margarita. A common misconception with cocktails is that they are really hard to make, some probably are but this is super simple. Perfect for having on a Friday night if you don’t want to hit the bars, and a huge deal cheaper too!
Serves 1 (obviously double the ingredients to make it for 2)
60ml tequila (silver or reposado) I like to use Don Julio
30ml fresh lime juice
Salt and lime to garnish (if you choose to. To salt the rim wipe the outside with lime and then place in some salt you have poured on a plate)
- Fill glass with ice to chill
- Put 4/5 ice cubes into a cocktail shaker along with the tequila, lime juice and agave syrup
- Shake vigorously for 5 seconds
- Strain and pour into the glass full of ice
That’s all there is to it. If you don’t have a cocktail shaker you can improvise by pouring all the ingredients into a glass and stirring for 30 seconds. To make it as a standard margarita simply substitute the agave syrup for triple sec/orange liquer.
