How to Make a Margarita – The Perfect Margarita

How to make a margarita, an easy question and an even easier one to answer and master. There are predominantly two major ways to make them – a frozen margarita or a margarita on the rocks. We will talk about both, but the tougher question is what to put in your margarita. Some minimalists would argue that a margarita should only include 100% agave tequila while others, myself included agree that a classic margarita recipe should include 100% agave tequila, Cointreau and Grand Marnier for instance. I have included several recipes for you to try.

 

How To Make a Margarita – the Frozen Margarita

In order to make a frozen margarita you will need the following items:

A margarita machine, daiquiri machine, frozen drink machine or just a plain old blender A premium 100% agave tequila of your choice Cointreau or other orange liqueur and Grand Marnier if you wish – try it both ways A frozen margarita mix or fresh limes Ice

Typically all ingredients would be added at the same time in the margarita machine and blended evenly until smooth. Some margarita machines and other frozen drink machines make the process easier but taking the ice and shaving it for a better margarita drink. If using fresh ingredients like lemons and or limes instead of a margarita mix, be sure to juice the limes fully and toss the remains.

Here are a few frozen margarita recipes.

2 ounces of premium 100% blue agave tequila
1/2 ounces of fresh lime juice or Rose’s sweetened lime juice
3/4 ounce Cointreau
Splash sweet-and-sour mix or margarita mix

2 ounces of premium 100% blue agave tequila
2 ounces of fresh lime juice
1/2 ounce Cointreau
1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
Ice

Blend as described above and serve in salted or unsalted margarita glasses. Its very straightforward but dont be afraid to mix up the ingredients and try some different margarita recipes and include some like a strawberry margarita or a mango margarita.

How To Make a Margarita – Margarita On The Rocks

In order to make a margarita on the rocks, you will need the following items:

A shaker A premium 100% agave tequila of your choice Cointreau or other orange liqueur and Grand Marnier if you wish – try it both ways A non frozen margarita mix or fresh limes Ice

Typically all ingredients would be added at the same time in the shaker along with a handful of ice, shaken – but not too hard – and then served in a salted or unsalted margarita glass. If using fresh ingredients like lemons and or limes instead of a margarita mix, be sure to juice the limes fully and toss the remains.

Here are a few frozen margarita recipes.

3 wedges lime or margarita mix
2 ounces gold tequila (Cuervo 1800)
1/2 ounce tequila (Cuervo white)
1 1/4 ounces Rose’s Lime Juice
1 splash orange Curaçao (Bols)
Crushed ice

1 oz Tequila
1 oz Blue Curacao
Splash of Lime juice
Splash of Lemon Lime Soda or margarita mix
1 oz Pineapple Juice
Ice

So now that we have shared how to make a margarita, try it both ways and mix up your ingredients, our blog has a lot of different margarita recipes for you to try next.

Margarita – Shaker BarSchool®

MARGARITAS ow.ly The Margarita, meaning daisy in Spanish, was supposedly created in 1946 by Margarita Sames at a cocktail party in Acapulco in Mexico. If using blanco tequila, add a little more sugar than if using an aged tequila. Glass: 10 oz rocks or 5 oz Martini Method: shake & strain 25ml Tequila 25ml Cointreau/triple sec/Grand Marnier 25ml lime juice 1 barspoon of sugar/agave syrup Put all the ingredients into a mixing glass and fill with ice. Cap with a Boston shaker and shake for a few seconds. Strain either over ice in a rocks glass or fine strain straight up into a cocktail glass that has been frosted with salt. Garnish with a perky lime wedge or lime wheel which can be used to take the salt off the rim of the glass. Margarita variations A classic twist on the margarita is the Japanese Slipper, which substitutes a melon liqueur for the Cointreau. The Margarita can be twisted similarly to the Daiquiri, using fresh fruit, Funkin purées, syrups or liqueurs. Also using rested and aged tequilas can change the dimension of this classic tequila cocktail.

Viva Margarita! How America’s Favorite Cocktail Came to Be

If you happen to be a margarita lover, you in all probability know where to purchase a great margarita! You might even know how to make margaritas. But do you know where and when your favorite frozen refreshment was first concocted?

 

The Mexican margarita is without a doubt one of Mexico’s most prized gifts to the world! Not one other beverage inspires such vivid images of sunny tropical beaches, lively island music, tiki hut bars and that inviting first taste of sweet, salty and sour! This amazing drink has even been turned into a permanent part of popular culture in Jimmy Buffett’s most famous music, “Margaritaville,” and will ceaselessly be related to the slogan “that frozen concoction” and the recurring chant, “salt, salt, salt!”

 

Whereas there are many types of standard and frozen margarita recipe, the tried and true remains the majority margarita fans’  favorite: your choice of tequila, the freshest possible lime juice (ideally from Key limes), Triple Sec (or the higher-priced Cointreau), and ice…. all served up in margarita glasses whose edges have been coated with salt.

 

So what is the precise beginning of the now much-loved frozen margarita recipe? Anything as popular and near perfect as that frozen concoction that helps us hang is certain to attract a number of people demanding credit for its birth.

 

One extremely popular story is that the original margarita was created way back in the Thirties in Tijuana, at the restaurant of Carlos “Danny” Herrera called Rancho La Gloria. As is commonly the circumstances with new cocktails, the original plan was to veil the harsh taste and burn of the alcohol, in this case, tequila. Since tequila has long been loved with lime and salt, all it took was a complimentary sweet ingredient, and the margarita was born. It would not be long before it was all thrown right into a blender and the first wonderful, slushy, frozen margarita recipe was adapted.

 

But Herrera would not get the credit so quickly. Others imagine that the margarita was created by a Dallas, Texas, socialite named Margarita Sames. Ms. Sames was said to have blended her namesake cocktail for some buddies, while vacationing in Acapulco, in the late 1940s. While her claim is significantly later than Herrera’s, it’s nonetheless accepted by many – possibly because one of her guests, hotelier Tommy Hilton, started offering the drink at his chain of hotels, which undoubtedly added to its popularity.

 

Hold your horses, Ms. Sames. Ever heard of (or drank) Jose Cuervo tequila? Certainly you have – if you have ever ordered a margarita at most establishments in America (and eastern Mexico). The spirit’s first U.S. importer, Anthony Dias Blue, is credited with writing the advertising tagline, “Margarita: it’s more than a girl’s name,” back in the mid-1940s…a number of years earlier than the Sames vacation party.

 

But the frozen margarita recipe wouldn’t come into its full glory till 1971 (six brief years prior to the release of “Margaritaville” – chance?), when the world’s original frozen margarita machine was invented by Mariano Martinez, a Dallas restaurateur.

 

In the end, does it actually matter? So long as you have got a blender or a margarita machine, a terrific frozen margarita recipe, and the correct mind set, the home of the margarita is wherever you are enjoying one!
