Best Margarita Ever

I will admit I love margaritas!  The problem is everyplace you go makes their margarita different and it is like playing Russian Roulette you never know what you are going to get.  Hence, I am very picky and when I order margaritas I always ask the servers or bartenders what is in theirs.  I am a purist with a margarita.  I like simple no fancy stuff and this recipe below is probably the best you can get! I know there are many of you ready that are saying you only like ones with an orange liquor in it but do me a favor just try this recipe then make up your mind!

One last thing!  Do NOT  Jose Cuervo or another cheap brand.  Cheap tequila is cheap for a reason...yuck!



True Margarita:  Serves 2


  • 2 ounces (1/4 cup) tequila 
  • 1 ounce (2 tablespoons) freshly squeezed lime juice 
  • 3/4 ounce (1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons) agave nectar 
  • 1 slice lime (sliced crosswise into a wheel) 
  • 3 tablespoons kosher salt


Optional:  Before filling the glass with ice, moisten the rim and dip it in a dish of kosher salt.

Shake the tequila, lime juice and agave nectar with ice in a cocktail shaker.  Then strain your margarita into your salt rimmed glass. Garnish with a lime half. CHEERS!
