Ingredients for Margaritas
• Hot Water: You’ll combine hot water with honey or agave syrup, which creates a simple syrup of sorts.
• Honey or Agave: Either work fine, choose which you prefer based on availability and/or taste preference. Add more for a sweeter cocktail. This can also be omitted for a “skinny margarita”. But it’s such a small amount I don’t suggest it.
• Lime Juice: Please do not use bottled lime juice! Fresh lime juice tastes a million times better and won’t give you that nasty heartburn most bottled citrus juices give.
• Tequila: At the end of the day, any tequila will work. But using a quality tequila, preferable a Blanco tequila, will give you the best flavor.
• Orange Liqueur: Cointreau or Grand Marnier are my tops picks. They’re pricier but last forever and are worth the splurge. I don’t suggest using triple sec, but in a pinch, it will technically work.
• Orange Juice: This is my secret ingredient that’s 100% optional, but totally recommend. A tiny splash of freshly squeezed oj cuts the bitterness and adds just a little something special to this margarita recipe.
• Ice: It doesn’t matter if you use regular ice cubes, crushed ice aka nugget ice, or those fancy giant cocktail ice cubes. Just be sure you have some form of ice on hand so your drink can be chilled.
• Margarita Salt: If you prefer a salt-rimmed glass, running a lime wedge around the top rim of a margarita glass and dip the rim into coarse salt… or sugar! This is optional but does make an extra lovely presentation.
