The Perfect Margarita

Margarita with a tajin rim

A margarita is probably my all time favorite cocktail. They can get a bad rep from premade mixes and super sugary drinks that leave a bad hangover. My version is made with fresh lime juice, light sugar, and a mix of tequila and mezcal- it's so refreshing, delicious, and easy to make!


-I like to squeeze a bunch of limes in advance of either the weekend, having people over, or just when I know I'll be making a bunch of drinks! Store that in a jar for a few days

-Definitely make your own simple syrup! My favorite recipe is here and you could make it spicy or just keep it to sugar and water


-If you don't like mezcal just double the tequila

-You could also replace some of the simple syrup with some orange liquor like Cointreau

-These would be so great to make a big batch of them for entertaining!


-I doubt you'll have any :)
