Reviews SectionStraight forward and delicious. You can add a splash of cuantro. Maybe a Grand Marnier float.ellisbancroftSan Diego05/16/20Simple. Delicious. It's a must. Used 1/2oz of simple syrup, perfect amount to subtle sweetness and tartness.AnonymousChicago, IL 04/09/20My hubs and I made these two nights in a row. Simple, perfect margarita. Not missing a thing.AnonymousLouisville, KY03/22/20This is amazing! The house drink at my wedding was similar albeit even lazier, hence our name "Lazy Margarita":- Desired tequila at the desired amount- Enough lemonade to tasteThis is absolutely perfect! I was hesitant about the lack of triple arc but I don’t like that stuff anyway and the drink is PERFECT without it. I’ll be making a pitcher of this stuff very soon!Jadespid3rNew Orleans01/12/19Great recipe.

It’s a must in the original recipe.karencita11México 03/07/18


The Margarita is one of the most popular cocktails in North America—for good reason. Combining the tang of lime and the sweetness of orange liqueur with the distinctive strength of tequila, the classic Margarita strikes all of the right keys. What’s less certain, however, is the drink’s origin.

Some say the cocktail was invented in 1948 in Acapulco, Mexico, when a Dallas socialite combined blanco tequila with Cointreau and lime juice for her guests. Others say that the Margarita, which translates to daisy flower in Spanish, was an inevitable twist on the Daisy, a cocktail template involving spirit, citrus, orange liqueur and soda. Make one with tequila, leave out the soda, and you get a Margarita. But regardless of how or when it was invented, the Margarita has earned its way into drinkers’ hearts.

When choosing your tequila, quality is key. Opt for a blanco made from 100% blue agave. If it doesn’t say this on the label, it’s mixto—a tequila composed of up to 49% mystery sugars. And although many people reach for premade sour mix, using fresh lime juice will result in a vastly superior drink. Then there’s the orange liqueur. What is a mandatory ingredient for some is rendered optional by others, who replace the sweetener with agave syrup. Go that route, and you get the Tommy’s Margarita, which was created in the early ’90s at Tommy’s Mexican Restaurant in San Francisco.

When talking Margaritas, it’s easy to get lost in stories about who invented the drink or become mired in debates over salt versus no salt blended or frozen triple sec, Cointreau or Grand Marnier. In our opinion, this version is the tried-and-true recipe for the best Margarita you can make. Memorize it, and you’ll always impress.

Tamarind Margarita

You will need: tequila, orange liqueur, tamarind nectar, simple syrup

Unbelievably simple and quick to mix up, the tamarind margarita is a wonder of the bar. It's a cocktail that every tequila-loving drinker needs to try at least once. It has a semisweet taste, and the tamarind adds a unique flair that most margaritas just can't touch, especially with the chili powder rim.

You can, of course, create a tamarind-pineapple margarita for the blender, but the basic recipe is just as satisfying. If you already have a well-stocked bar, then all that's needed is the tamarind nectar. It's easy to find in the juice aisle of most major supermarkets and international food markets.

Taste Test

The biggest tip we can give for making any cocktail is that you always taste test. Use a small spoon to sample the cocktail. If you feel it needs more sweetener, add more!

It’s important to note that ingredients won’t always taste the same, depending on the brand you use, how fresh the fruit is or how tart the lime is. So always taste test!


What is the best tequila for margaritas?

Using a good tequila makes a difference. Here are 5 good options:

  • Casamigos Blanco
  • Silver Patron
  • Cazodores Tequila Reposado
  • Espolòn Reposada Tequila
  • Casa Noble Tequila Crystal

Fresh Fruit

Always use fresh fruit! Never buy lime juice or lemon juice. Also, don’t use frozen fruit. Use fresh fruit for the best results.

Shake It!

Margaritas are shaken cocktails and a crucial part of the process. When making, shake with ice for more than 20 seconds so the water can dilute the cocktail making it less intense when strained.

Sweet, juicy blackberries make for one pretty purple drink.

If desired, garnish this spicy margarita recipe with a wedge of grilled pineapple and a chile slice. Still looking for more options? We've got a fizzy blackberry-thyme variation as well.
