Chips and salsa. Beans and rice. Tacos and tequila. You can’t go wrong with a classic.

Prep time: 3 minutes | Serving size: 2 cocktails 


4 ounces of tequila, your favorite brand!

2 ounces Cointreau

2 ounces fresh lime juice

Coarse salt

Lime wedges and wheels


If you like salt, start by rimming two margarita glasses using a lime wedge. Dip into a plate of coarse salt.

Mix the tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker and shake with ice until chilled.

Strain into glasses, with or without fresh ice. Garnish with lime wheels and serve. ¡Salud!
