This recipe is simple, delicious, and has the perfect balance of sweetness, tang, and smooth tequila.

– Blanco tequila – Orange liqueur – Lime juice – Simple syrup – Limes, coarse salt, tajin (optional)

Simple syrup can be made or bought and used to sweeten your margarita.

Using fresh lime juice is key to a good margarita. The shelf-stable bottled kind will not produce a quality cocktail.

Zest some lime into your coarse salt and use your fingers to mesh it together. Use a lime to wet the rim of your glass and then dip it into the salt mix.

Add all your ingredients to your shaker. If you don't have a cocktail shaker, use a mason jar. Just remember, it's glass, so shake carefully!
