This Classic Margarita recipe is my go-to, all time favourite. With just a few simple ingredients, you can enjoy this cocktail too!
Hi everyone and welcome to cashmere & cocktails! To kick start the blog, I’m sharing this classic margarita recipe because, well, I love margaritas. The Classic Margarita has a few crucial ingredients that make so darn delicious! Basically, all you need is lime, tequila (the good stuff - yes it matters), Cointreau, simple syrup and salt.
Why do I love the classic margarita so much? When you used high quality, fresh ingredients, I'd argue that a classic margarita is the best cocktail there is. It has just the right amount of sweet, tangy and salty that makes it balanced to perfection.
I’d like to advise those who partake in these delicious alcohol bombs that they should be drank in the privacy of your own home, surrounded by people who won’t judge you because tequila can be both your best friend and worse enemy. A few too many of these and you may find yourself blackout drunk, stripping your off clothes while speaking as much espagnol as your Dora the Explorer education allows. Not that I speak from experience or anything *cough*.

Here’s what you’ll need:
- ⅓ cup fresh – I repeat FRESH - lime juice

- Lime wedge
- Coarse sea salt
Here’s what you’ll do:
1. Moisten the rim of your glass with the lime wedge then dip the rim in salt.
2. Throw the juice, syrup, tequila and triple sec into a cocktail shaker.
3. Add a few cubes of ice and shake until the ice has dissolved.
4. Carefully pour the margarita into your glass, without disturbing the salt.
5. Try not to blackout.
