Classic 3-2-1 Margarita

Course: Beverages
Keyword: Margarita
We prefer our margaritas strong, not too sweet, served over ice (not frozen), and always with fresh lime juice. A good Margarita is all about proportions… Our Classic 3-2-1 Margarita recipe has the right amount of tequila, orange liqueur, and lime juice to ensure perfection every time. Olé!

  • 3 oz Tequila Blanco *You can use mezcal instead to add a smokey flavor
  • 2 oz Orange liqueur Such as Cointreau, Triple Sec, or Grand Marnier
  • 1 oz Fresh lime juice


  • Combine the tequila, liqueur, and lime juice into a cocktail shaker and add ice.
  • Give it a good shake over the shoulder – it should feel like you're in a fancy cocktail lounge.
  • Pour (with ice) into a salt-rimmed glass and garnish with a lime wedge. Drink and enjoy! ⁠


To spice things up, muddle half a jalapeño in the cocktail shaker before adding other ingredients.⁠
