Description

When you want a refreshing margarita without all the sugar. It’s a simple recipe created by someone near and dear to me who never measures, but these ingredients will get you there.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 4.5 ounces Reposado or Anejo tequila
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (2 big limes)
  • Big splash of water (up to 1/2 cup depending on tartness desired)
  • 1 Tbsp raw Agave syrup
  • 1 cup ice
  • Light splash of Cointreau or Triple Sec (Optional)
  • Margarita salt (Optional)

Instructions

  1. Combine the ice, lime juice, tequila, water, and agave into a cocktail shaker and shake until well combined (about 10 shakes).
  2. Taste and adjust if needed (usually a tad more water or agave).
  3. Divide among ice filled (and salt rimmed if desired) glasses or serve straight up in martini glass.
  4. Add an optional splash of Cointreau or Triple Sec and stir lightly, then garnish with lime wedges.
  5. Serve immediately. Cheers!
