How to Make a Margarita: 3 Ways.

Option 1 - Straight from the bottle.

For those of us who are lazy as fuck:

jose cuervo margaritas mararita bottle 70cl


This bottle is only 10% alcohol though, so you’ll need a lot to get drunk and probably get get bored of the shit-ton of sugar they put in.


Option 2 - Margarita mix and teuila.

Grab a bottle of this:

margaritaville margarita mix jimmy buffet

And mix with two to three shots of this (per glass):

sierra Tequila Gold bottle hat sombrero

And pour over ice.


Option 3 - An actual Margarita fucking recipe.

The IBA (IBA Official list of Cocktails) standard is 7:4:3, that is, 50% tequila, 29% Cointreau, 21% fresh lime juice. - wikipedia.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 Bottle Tequila
  • 1 Bottle Cointreau
  • 1 lime
  • Salt
  • Ice (Optional - also a blender if you want the slushie version)

1.) Cut your lime into 8 segments.

2.) Squeeze 6 of the segments into a cocktail shaker (or blender if that’s your thing).

3.) Run 1 segment of lime around a rim of your glass and swirl the glass, upside down, in a dish filled with salt.

4.) Lick some salt, have a shot of tequila and bite down hard of the eighth segment.

5.) Throw a scoop of ice, 2 shots of tequila and 1 shot of Cointreau into the shaker/blender.

6.) SHAKE THAT MOTHERFUCKER!!

7.) Strain into your glass, throw ice away. You can have the ice if you like, it just doesn’t look that great in the glass.

BTW: I usually go with option 2 as it’s cheaper and i’m lazy…
