Margarita Recipe for Cinco de Mayo


With it being May 5th, also known as Cinco de Mayo, I thought I would share with you my favorite margarita recipe. I love this margarita recipe because it is fresh! No artificial mixers, just fresh lime juice. I’ve also taken this basic recipe and added a little different flavor like orange liquor, or fresh blood orange juice (which was delicious!), but for today here is the basic recipe.

1 Margarita:

  • Juice of 3 Limes
  • .5 – 1 oz Light Agave
  • 2 oz Tequila
  • Ice
  • Kosher Salt for Rim of Glass

Pour the agave, tequila, and lime juice in a shaker filled with ice. Lightly shake until chilled. With a quarter slice of lime, wet the rim of the glass. Dip the rim of the glass into a saucer, or cocktail rimmer, of kosher salt. Now, pour your margarita into the glass and enjoy! 

What’s your favorite type of margarita? Are you a classic or do you like to mix it up with different flavors?
