Stop! The search for the Best Margarita Recipe Is Over!

"Just show me one person that doesn't just love a margarita..."


A Perfect Margarita Recipe is hard to find, but that's ok you've found it now! In a few minutes you can be drinking this great cocktail.

The margarita is the national cocktail of Mexico, it's one of the most refreshing cocktails out there, and very simple to make.

I've mixed hundreds of margaritas until I've found the best margarita recipe.

The Classic margarita's basic ingredient is Tequila, you can use blanco tequila (silver) or golden (I prefer golden...) will do, to the tequila we add lime or lemon juice (only if you have no limes!), and some simple syrup (melted sugar) sugar.

The world divides into two groups of people, the ones who drink their margarita with salt on the rim of the glass and the ones who don't.

If you're looking for something a bit sweeter and fruity check out another great margarita, the frozen strawberry margarita, it's a sure winner and very simple to make.

Here is my Classic Margarita mixing video. If you prefer a written recipe just scroll down this page.

Cocktail-Guru Tip
