Margarita (A Traditional Recipe)

You will notice that this recipe includes two optional elements, a teaspoon of simple syrup, and a splash of soda. I often add both elements especially if I have friends over who do not consume tequila regularly. The touch of sweetness and the splash of soda often makes the taste of the Margarita cocktail more suitable to a larger variety of palates.

The Margarita Cocktail (A Traditional Recipe)

1 1/2 oz Blanco Tequila
3/4 oz Triple Sec
3/4 oz fresh lime juice
1 tsp sugar syrup (optional)
Splash of soda (optional)
lime slice for garnish

Chill a cocktail glass and rim the outside with coarse salt
Place the tequila, lime, Triple Sec, and sugar syrup into a metal shaker
Shake until the outside of the shaker frosts
Strain into the chilled cocktail glass
Add a splash of soda if desired
Garnish with Lime
