Ingredients for a delicious Margarita:

  1. Lemon(s): Depending on the number of margaritas you are going to prepare. The juice will be used both in the drink mix and to moisten the rim of the glass before frosting with salt. Calculate 30 ml (1oz) of lemon juice per Margarita.

  2. Salt: To frost the rims of the glasses.

  3. Tequila: We recommend "Tres Generaciones©," but you can use your preferred brand.

  4. Syrup: This will act as a sweetener in the drink.

  5. Orange liqueur: Adds a touch of sweetness and an aromatic flavor to the drink.

Steps to prepare the perfect Margarita:

1. Squeeze the lemon:

First, the lemon. The choice of this ingredient can make a notable difference in the taste of our Margarita. The type of lemon also matters; for example, lemon with seeds has a more acidic taste. The lemon's acidity is vital to complement the strength of the Tequila. Therefore, it's essential to choose wisely to achieve the perfect balance of flavors.

We will squeeze lemon juice into a glass to obtain 2 oz or 60 ml to prepare two margaritas.

2. Frost the rim of the glass with salt:

The juice will also be used to moisten the rims of our glasses before applying salt. Place the salt on a plate, wet the edge with the lemon juice, and apply the salt by turning the glass until the grains stick to the rim.

3. Pour ice into the glass:

Fill the glass with ice.

4. Use a shaker to mix the ingredients:

  • In a mixing glass for cocktails, pour in the lemon juice.
  • Next, add the syrup, which will act as a sweetener. Be careful with the amount of this ingredient to avoid making our Margarita too sweet. A slight touch will be enough, estimating 1 oz per glass or 30 ml.
  • And let's remember the orange liqueur. This essential ingredient provides a sweet and aromatic taste contrasting with the acidity of the lemon and Tequila. For this, calculate half an ounce per glass.

5. Add the Tequila to the Mix:

Regarding Tequila, we recommend using Tres Generaciones©, Silver Tequila. This Tequila adds a smooth and distinctive touch to our Margarita.

The final taste of the Margarita depends a lot on individual preferences. Some may prefer a more spicy tequila taste, while others want a sweeter taste. The key is to find the balance that suits us best.

Add one to two oz of Tequila for each Margarita and shake the mix.

6. Serve the Margarita in the glass:

Finally, serve our Margarita in the appropriate glass, preferably a margarita glass, and garnish with a slice of lemon.
