Classic Homemade Margaritas | WineTransit.com

Are you craving a refreshing Margarita? We've got you covered! Here's a classic Margarita recipe you can try at home!

Some tips:

  • Use fresh-squeezed lime juice instead of the kind you find in the bottles at the supermarket
  • If you're making a bunch of margaritas, you'll need a bunch of limes (for juice and garnish)
  • Cutting the thick agave nectar with equal amounts of water allows it to mix in better
  • Classic Homemade Margaritas

    Ingredients
    • 2 oz Tequila
    • 1 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
    • .75 oz Triple Sec or Cointreau
    • 1.5 oz agave nectar and water mixture (see tips)
    • ice cubes
    • sea salt (for rimming the glass)
    • lime wedges (for garnish)
    Instructions
    1. Prepare the Glass: Rub the rim of a margarita or regular rocks glass with a lime wedge, then dip the rim of the glass into a plate of salt to coat it. If you prefer your margaritas on the rocks, fill the glass with ice.
    2. Prepare the Shaker: Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
    3. Add the Ingredients: Pour the Tequila, lime juice, Cointreau or Triple Sec, and agave nectar and water mixture into the shaker.
    4. Shake Well: Secure the lid on the shaker and shake vigorously for 15 seconds.
    5. Strain into Your Glass: Using a strainer, pour the contents of the shaker into your prepared glass.
    6. Garnish: Garnish your margarita with a lime wedge.

    Item #: 17588

    WE9898 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2011
    A stunning limited-edition añejo. The golden color and caramel scent hint at what’s to come: sweet agave flavor, a lingering whisper of smoke and mellow notes of tropical fruit, Sauternes and butterscotch.

    This familiar workhorse liqueur is clear in the glass and offers a juicy orange flesh aroma. The sweet palate has a familiar orange flavor and finishes cleanly, with just a hint of warm spice.

    Clear. Aromas of cracked pepper, pineapple custard, and baked yams with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a peppery, warming alcohol and dusty finish. Highly Recommended.

    Item #: 50689

    WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2020
    The mild aroma of this Tequila shows just a hint of coconut. The palate opens with robust honey and jalapeño tones, settling into coconut sweetness on the exit, and braced up with a drying burst of clove. It’s all packaged in a dramatic, extra-tall sculptural bottle.
