Outside the sun starts to shine again. The weather is crazy right now. After two days of good weather, there was suddenly hail and snow. Now that the sun is breaking through, it is time for a new recipe. I don’t like sour when it comes to sauces and food. Yet this is very different with drinking. Today also a recipe for a drink that is a bit on the sour side, but so tasty! In this article, we’ll take a closer look at how to make Margarita.

What is the definition of Margarita

The meaning of Margarita is:

”A Mexican cocktail that belongs to the category of short drinks. The drink consist of tequila, salt, lime and triple sec. The cocktail is one of the official IBA cocktails”.

Margarita

You have probably heard of this cocktail, there is no other way. The cocktail is a real classic. This Mexican cocktail belong to the short drinks. You have three options for this classic:

  • Margarita on the rocks
  • Frozen Margarita
  • Margarita (classic without ice)

The drink’s history comes from Mexico. There are many different stories circulating about who is the real inventor of the drink. It is said that the drink is related to the popular Mexican drink the Daisy. In 1937 a recipe for the margarita appeared in the book Cafe Royal Cocktail Book. Tequila, triple sec and lime juice were shaken together. It is not known who this recipe belonged to. Every year there was a claim from someone who indicated that he had invented the drink. This went on from 1930 to 1961. From bartenders to locals who had run out of their favorite drink, so they started mixing tequila with other ingredients.

You can easily make the three variants I described above. With the on the rocks variant, you fill the glass with some ice cubes. With the frozen version you take the ice cubes with you in the blender, which gives you a slushy texture! So choose which one you like best.

Margarita Recipe

This cocktail recipe is so easy. You need the follow ingredients: tequila, salt, lime juice and triple sec. On the side of the margarita glass you can add a slice of lime.

For this recipe do you have two options. If you want the frozen margarita version you need a blender of mixer. If you want the classic margarita you only need a shaker. Add ice cubes to the shaker. You start measuring the 45 ml of tequila, 25 ml of triple sec and the juice of 1,5 lime. Add these ingredients to the shaker and start shaking. If you are done shaking you make the edge of the margarita glass a little bit wet with lime juice. Add a nice salty edge layer. Strain the margarita in the glass without the ice cubes. To make this cocktail perfect you add a slice of lime on the side.

Taste the margarita. If you want to add more of one ingredient, you add the margarita back in the shaker together with the ingredient you want to add. Give it a little shake and strain it again!

Frozen Margarita

If you want the frozen margarita you add the ingredients together with the ice cubes to the mixer. Start mixing and after you have a nice slushy texture you add this to the margarita glass! You can start with 4-5 ice cubes and just watch the texture when you are mixing. If you think the mixture isn’t thick enough you can add more ice cubes!
