Our #1 Margarita Recipe for National Margarita Day

Lucky for you, the holiday falls on a Saturday this year.

One might argue that every Saturday is Margarita Day, but this year National Margarita Day, aka Feb. 22, actually falls on a Saturday — and we'll drink to that! But don't just raise a glass filled with any ol' recipe you find on the internet (or settle for that overly sweet mix).

No, this day of celebration calls for the very best: our No. 1 margarita recipe.

You can make the 5-star recipe in only five minutes, and you won't even need to dig the blender out from the back of the cabinet. Just shake tequila, lime juice, simple syrup and orange liqueur together with ice until your ingredients are mixed and chilled, about 30 seconds. Want salt with that? Our lime-salt-sugar mixture is the perfect balance of sweet and salty.

What’s in a margarita? 3 simple ingredients!

There’s nothing I love more than a basket of chips and salsa and a margarita in my hand. At restaurants and bars, I tend to ask the bartender if they can “make it tart.” Little did I know, a true margarita drink contains no added sugar! That’s right: no simple syrup at all. You’ll find that this makes the very best margarita recipe you’ll find.

This popular Mexican cocktail was invented in the 1930s. It’s a classic sour cocktail that’s on the list of International Bartender Association’s IBA official cocktails. This means that there’s an “official” definition (Want the exact quantities? Jump to the recipe). Here’s what’s in a margarita:

  • Tequila
  • Cointreau or Triple Sec
  • Lime juice

Our 10 Most Popular Margarita Recipes

What do Jimmy Buffet, this bear, and Chilis have in common? Well, they all love Margaritas. And who doesn’t? In 2019, the festive tequila drink was listed as the top cocktail choice among American drinkers, accounting for 56 percent of cocktail sales. In 2018, one Margarita even sold for $2,500.

No matter the season (or reason), making Margaritas — consisting of tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur (usually triple sec) — is both simple and endlessly customizable. Don’t know where to start? We’ve assembled our 10 most popular Margarita recipes here, to honor the cocktail in all its sweet, salty, and spicy versions.

From coconut and blueberries, to avocados, to plain old OJ, consider this an essential guide to the Margarita — in its many, maddeningly delicious forms.

Drinks Essentials For People Who Love Tequila

The Margarita Recipe

First, we’ll ease into it with the original Margarita. Although the origins of this drink are somewhat mysterious, this classic recipe doesn’t have to be. Take tequila, lime juice, and triple sec and — ta da! — mission accomplished.

The Winter Margarita

Admittedly, it still feels like winter in some parts of the U.S. If that describes your geographic location (or perhaps state of mind), then this iteration, calling for pear and cranberry, offers both a crisp flavor and appearance, and the rich, caramel-y reposado will warm you right up.

The Blueberry Coconut Margarita

Like your fruit and want to drink it, too? Blanco tequila, blueberries, and coconut cream blend together in this adult smoothie. Serve it in a Collins glass to showcase the beautiful berry color.

The Coconut Margarita

Crazy for coconut but not big on blueberry? Opt for this version of the coconut Margarita, which is all sorts of creamy, tropical, and tasty. Coconut and cinnamon flavors take the stage here.

The Spicy Strawberry Margarita

Strawberry, spice, and tequila sound… pretty nice. This version promises just that, plus a spicy addition of a chopped serrano pepper. Wash your hands, and dry your eyes. No need to cry over this recipe (unless you spill it, of course).

Spicy Blackberry Margarita

Spice, spice baby. Yes, another spicy Marg. Skip the serrano pepper and opt instead for fresh jalapeño. The kick from the pepper balances nicely with sweet agave nectar and blackberry fruit.

Spicy Mandarin Margarita

Reposado-based Margaritas offer mellow vanilla and oak flavors that a standard silver tequila won’t. That brings beautiful balance to serrano spice and subtle citrus in this spicy Margarita riff. Swap orange liqueur for mandarin juice, and batch it in a pitcher for some picnic table drinking.

Spicy Avocado Coconut Margarita

Bust out the blender and avocados for this sea-foam green, creamy Margarita. An addition of tajín — a seasoning from Mexico that combines chili, lime, and salt — adds savory complexity.

The Morning Margarita

Mimosa, who? In this ode to orange juice, tequila and lemon-ginger syrup mix with OJ in a brightly colored cocktail that upgrades any brunch plan.

Watermelon & Basil Margarita

Nothing says summer like the refreshing taste of watermelon. This Margarita combines añejo tequila with fresh basil and watermelon, which bring out the tequila’s savory and sweet sides.

Fresh blueberries give a delightful twist to this margarita. Get the recipe for Blueberry and Basil Margarita » Todd Coleman

This richly flavored pomegranate margarita is just as good sipped on a cold day in front of a roaring fire as it is on a balmy afternoon spent on a tropical beach. Get the recipe for Pomegranate Margarita » Mackenzie Smith

What constitutes the best margarita recipe ever? Well, that would depend on your tastebuds. So we are offering up five unique ways to dish up the best margarita ever.

Ready for the best margarita recipes ever? Let's get started:

Margarita Ingredients

All right then, here’s what you need:

Should I use Blanco Tequila or Reposado Tequila?

You can use blanco or reposado tequila. Reposado is tequila that has been aged in oak whiskey barrels while blanco is distilled and bottled immediately. I prefer blanco for this margarita recipe, but it’s personal preference. You want a high-quality tequila that is 100% agave with no fillers or other ingredients. The bottle shown is Corralejo, the one that Tim recommends, and retails for about $25 a bottle.

Cointreau- Cointreau is an orange liqueur.

Agave Nectar- Agave nectar is used to sweeten your margarita. You can leave this out, but it’s already a strong drink without it as cointreau is drier than triple sec, which is sometimes used in margaritas.

Limes (lime juice)-Fresh lime juice is worth the effort! I use a citrus juicer and life’s never been the same.

Cocktail Shaker- You’ll use it to make so many classic cocktails. Here’s one I like.

Once you have your ingredients, you’re ready for the best margarita of your life! I hope you love this as much as we do.

There are so many ways to change up this tasty classic cocktail! Here are some ideas for how to make a margarita:

Authentic Margarita Recipe

Today is National Margarita Day, so what better way to celebrate than sharing our Authentic Mexican Margarita recipe?!

The best way to ignite memories from your travels is through cuisine. Bringing the flavors of your vacation home to your kitchen will remind you of your passion for traveling. If you close your eyes while sipping this delicious margarita, you are sure to picture yourself relaxing on the beach.

Maybe in a hammock on the beach in Cozumel, Mexico.

Authentic Margarita Recipe

To make an authentic margarita, skip the pre-made mix and start with squeezing fresh limes. It takes roughly two full limes to equal two ounces of lime juice.

We add Cointreau to our margaritas. It’s an orange spirit brand of triple sec produced in France.
Then add your tequila of choice, we used a silver tequila. Add one ounce of tequila and one ounce of Cointreau. Roughly one shot glass of each.

To give your margarita a little sweetness and balance the bitter lime, add some honey water! Mix honey into half a shot glass of water and mix well. Slowly add to your margarita per taste.

Mix all your margarita ingredients in your shaker.

Do you like your margarita with a salted rim glass?

Take your lime slice and rub around the rim of your glass. The dip in a bowl or plate of sea salt. Perfection.

Add crushed ice to your glass and pour your margarita in.
