Classic, Yet Simple, Margarita

You can’t go wrong with a simple but classic margarita recipe.

2 oz. tequila

1 oz. triple sec

1 oz. lime juice

1/2 oz. simple syrup

Prepare your glass. Pour kosher salt on a plate. Rub a lime wedge along the rim of a glass and then dip into the kosher salt. Add ice to the glass.

Add the tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker full of ice. Shake until cold. Pour into the prepared glass.

The Simple Virgin Margarita

Who needs tequila when you have the cool, refreshing lime taste of this delicious sip!

1 oz. lemon juice

1 oz. lime juice

1 oz. orange juice

2 oz. simple syrup

Prepare your glass. Pour kosher salt on a plate. Rub a lime wedge along the rim of a glass and then dip into the kosher salt. Add ice to the glass.

Add the three juices and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker full of ice. Shake until cold. Pour into the prepared glass.

Paloma

Not a margarita, but the lime and salt combined with the grapefruit soda make this a refreshing beverage.

2 oz. tequila

1/2 oz. lime juice

pinch of kosher salt

Grapefruit soda (like Squirt)

Add ice to a highball glass. Pour the tequila and lime juice into the glass. Stir, then add the salt and stir again. Top with the grapefruit soda. (If you like it salty, add more salt.)

Simple Strawberry Margarita

Limes shouldn’t have all the fun! Let this simple margarita recipe ignite engagement and fun for the entire party.

1 1/2 oz. tequila

1 oz. triple sec

1/2 oz. lime juice

3/4 oz. simple syrup

3 whole, frozen strawberries

1 cup ice

Prepare your glass. Pour sugar on a plate. Rub a lime wedge along the rim of a glass and then dip into the sugar. Add ice to the glass.

Add ice to a blender, followed by all the other ingredients. Blend until the consistency of a milk shake. Pour into a prepared glass.

Margarita Sangria (Simple Recipe)

Here’s a simple margarita recipe for a Moms Night Out or a Taco Tuesday party!

1 bottle red wine (merlot or pinot noir is best, but you can use any kind of red wine)

1 cup tequila

1 1/2 cups simple syrup

1 each (cut into wheels with seeds removed): orange, lemon, lime

Combine all ingredients in a large glass container. Stir. Refrigerate for at least four hours, preferably overnight. Serve over ice. Makes 6-8 drinks.

Notes:

  • If you like sweet drinks, add more simple syrup. Like it more tart? Less simple syrup.
  • To make simple syrup, combine equal parts water and sugar. (I usually do one cup water and one cup sugar.) Boil until the sugar dissolves. Cool before using. Simple syrup can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
  • Obviously, fresh juice is best, so if you have a couple of limes (or as noted oranges and lemons), feel free to use fresh squeezed juices. In a pinch, the juice from a bottle will work just fine.
  • To make any of the margaritas into a frozen simple margarita recipe, simply fill a blender with ice, add the ingredients as noted, and blend until smooth.
  • If you don’t have the time, there are some fantastic pre-made drinks. Cutwater Spirits, one of our sponsors from our Third Birthday Bash, makes a terrific canned Paloma.
