As far as cocktails go, margaritas are one of the best, most refreshing and easy to make. Blended or on the rocks – there’s no “best” way. Unless you want to zhoosh it up with strawberries or watermelon or cucumber, then blending might just be better. Summer is coming ~ get your cocktail bar set up now!

This recipe was borrowed from Love and Lemons who claim it’s the best! We really liked the recipe. Let us know what YOU think!

For One Margarita on the Rocks

  • 1 oz blanco/silver tequila
  • 1 oz orange liqueur, Cointreau or Grand Marnier
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • ½ zo agave nectar or your own simple syrup 
  • Ice
  • Coarse salt for rimming glass
  • Lime slices for garnish
  • Glassware: Double rocks tumbler
Rub a lime wedge around the rim of a rocks glass. Fill a low rim bowl with coarse salt. Dip the glass into the salt to coast edge. Fill glass with several pieces of ice. In a cocktail shaker, add ice, tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice and agave. Vigorously shake for about 30-45 seconds. Strain into the glass. Taste for sweetness and add more agave if so desire. Garnish with lime slice and enjoy!
