Margarita

Margarita cocktail with tequila and lime juice

There are at least a dozen different recipes for this classic cocktail, but we think the 2-1-1-.25 ratio is ideal. The extra bit of agave or simple syrup isn’t traditional, but we find it helps when limes are out-of-season and not as sweet, or when you’re serving drinkers with a sweeter palate. Feel free to omit it.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass or margarita glass. If you’d like, rim the glass in salt beforehand – but make sure to only rim the outside of the glass, not the top or inside edge.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
