Celebrate National Margarita Day!

The classic margarita is shaken with ice and then served either on those “rocks” or straight up. Or it’s served “frozen” by blending it with the ice. The traditional glass is rimmed in salt and garnished with a lime slice.


There are countless variations, but here’s how to make the Classic Margarita.
2 oz tequila
1 oz orange liquor (triple sec or curacao)
1 oz lime juice
(Some recipes also call for a bit of sweetness from simple syrup.)

That’s it! Enjoy one today… with a side of cheesy nachos, please, for me.
