Recipe for The Classic Margarita Cocktail. Once you have a margarita made with real lime juice, you'll never go back to the pre-mix kind again.

  • 1/2 ounce triple sec (an orange liqueur)
  • 1 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice
  • simple syrup to taste
  • salt 1 wedge lime for ganrish


  1. Make a slice in a lime wedge ad run the edge around the rim of a glass (in order to make a wet edge on the glass). Dip wet glass edge in salt. Fill a large cup with ice and add remaining ingredients. Shake well. Pour ice and drink into salt rimmed glass for margarita "on the rocks". for a "straight up" margarita, strain out the ice.
