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.

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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
