The Perfect Margarita

Perhaps you already have a favorite Margarita recipe, but if not, allow me to introduce you to my all-time favorite.

Bright with fresh citrus, balanced with just the right amount of sweetness and tang, this Margarita offers a taste of summertime any time of year.

The Perfect Margarita

1.5 ounces of your favorite tequila
4.5 ounces of your favorite Margarita mix (mine is Dr. Swami & Bone Daddy's)
1/2 ounce Triple Sec or Grand Marnier
a handful of ice
Juice of 1 whole lime
Juice of 1 whole lemon
Juice of 1 whole orange

Place ingredients into a cocktail shaker or blender.  Shake vigorously for 10 seconds or blend until smooth.  Pour into a salt-rimmed glass and enjoy!


  1. The addition of orange is pure genius! I will be making this soon! It sounds so refreshing!

  2. I have long held the opinion that Triple Sec is an instrument of pure evil and use nothing less than Cointreau in my cocktails--so much smoother and less likely to overpower a cocktail.

  3. I think I just found me new favorite margarita....delicious & refreshing :)

  4. This looks delicious! I pinned it.

    Also I sent you an email about advertising last week, I'm not sure if you got it. I'd like to advertise my Etsy shop on your blog. I'll email you again.

    Thanks Jen!
