Recipe For a Classic Margarita

Makes Four Servings


One cup Silver tequila

3/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

Four Tablespoons fresh orange juice

Four Tablespoons Agave nectar, sugar syrup or sugar water

One cup ice

1/4 cup Kosher salt

Four chilled Martini glasses or tall glasses lined with Kosher salt

Lime Wedges For Garnish

Mint leaves for garnish


1) In a tall glass or blender place the ice, juices, tequila, and sugar. Whirl on a slow setting so as not to completely crush the ice.

2) Place some additional ice in your Martini glasses to chill. Remove the ice. Put salt on a plate and spread it out. Rim your glasses with the salt by dipping the rim in.

3) Pour your ice cold Margaritas into the glasses, straining with the lid. Garnish with mint leaves and lime wedges
