The Best Margarita

When you think of tequila, you probably think of a margarita. The margarita is one of the most popular tequila drink around today. And it’s no wonder because they taste great and also pack quite a punch. I know a place in Hoboken, NJ has a 3 drink maximum policy for it’s margaritas because they’re loaded with alcohol but you’d never know it from the taste. They’re that good.

As usual with most drinks there are many ways to make this drink and then many variations on top of that. The key ingredients are tequila, triple sec and lime juice. The ratios that I think are the best are as follows:

Margarita Ingredient Ratios:
3 Parts - Tequila
2 Parts - Triple Sec
1 Parts - Lime Juice

So when making a margarita at home it’s pretty easy to remember, 3:2:1. Whether you make it frozen, straight up or on the rocks, 3-2-1 is the way to go. Serve in a salt rimmed glass and garnish with a lime.

As with all recipes whether they’re for cocktails or even food, the key is quality ingredients. Cheap tequila that you can find on sale at your local liquor store will result in a cheap tasting margarita. Fresh lime juice can also make a huge difference in how the drink tastes. Go the extra mile and squeeze some limes if you want to impress your guests. Once you become a master margarita maker, you may have to impose a 3 drink maximum at all your parties.
