How To Make A Perfect Margarita

Jun 15, 2023 | Great To Drink | 0 comments

Soon you’ll be able to make the perfect Margarita but first let me tell you how I fell in love with this classic cocktail.

Once upon a time, I found myself ensconced in a charming beach shack bar in sun-soaked Key West, Florida. Before me, a freshly shaken Margarita nestled in the perfect glass, its rim adorned with a generous layer of coarse salt. Utter bliss. As the sun cast its rays, I engaged in a spot of people-watching, and that perfect moment etched itself indelibly into my memory. I was at peak happiness, peak me. This classic libation remains my absolute favourite cocktail, and, of course, the reason why I started my business but, I implore you: before you dare to dabble in flavourful variations and crushed ice, do try this time-honoured version at least once. Immerse yourself in the enchantment, raise your glass, and whisper a little “Cheers” in my direction.

Ingredients for a duo of delightful drinks:

How To – Make the perfect Margarita every time:

  1. This traditional recipe eschews sugar syrup, relying on top-notch ingredients for a perfectly balanced tipple BUT if you want it sweeter, just add dash of Agave syrup or 10ml of sugar syrup.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add your ingredients, secure the lid, and shake vigorously for 20-30 seconds.
  3. Set the shaker aside briefly, run a lime wedge around your glassware’s rim, and then dip into the tin of Classic Margarita Salt.
  4. Strain the delightfully chilled mixture into two glasses and garnish with a lime wheel or wedge. (Or just pour it if you want to have little bits of fresh lime in your Marg, I know I do!)
