We love a good margarita but they are quite hard to come by. Most restaurants here use sweet and sour mix or fake lime juice and they just don't taste right. Our favorite restaurant margarita is from Guero's Taco Bar in Austin, Texas and this is my attempt to recreate those at home. For those that like their margs sweet, you might add 1 TBSP of powdered sugar or a squirt of Agave nectar to the concoction. Let me know how that turns out if you try it.

Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2-4

  • juice of 4 limes
  • 3 jiggers tequila (small shot glass full) 
  • 2 jiggers water
  • 1/2 jigger Cointreau
  • ice
  • salt or chile lime salt for glass rims (optional)
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Cut your limes in half and juice them. I juiced into a glass here so you can see how much juice I had. You should probably just juice into your cocktail shaker.
  3. Add your tequila, water and Cointreau to the shaker and shake it all together.
  4. Put some salt on a small plate. I use Tajin which is a Mexican chile lime salt as you can see in the pic.
  5. Run one of your squeezed limes around the rim of your glasses and run them through the salt.
  6. Pour and serve.
