Classic Lime Margarita

May 2, 2014


I love my fair share of margaritas… and love to try a wide variety of concoctions (ginger-jalapeno, watermelon, spicy strawberry, etc.), but I started laughing when I found out I’ve never shared my basic lime margarita recipe with you all! In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I present to you…


Classic Lime Margarita

  • 1 1/2 oz high quality tequila
  • 1  oz fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 oz orange liqueur (i.e. Cointreau)
  • A heavy splash of agave (more or less to taste)
  1. Add ingredients into a shaker and shake with ice.
  2. Strain into an ice filled glass (rimmed with lime juice and salt if you prefer) and garnish with lime.

Ginger Jalapeno Margarita

September 13, 2013

Ginger MargaritaI love infused syrups and I love margaritas… so this past weekend I thought… why not mix the two?!?  I had some ginger syrup and thought that mixing it with some homemade jalapeno tequila could be just the thing… and it was!  Refreshing with a fun kick!

Mango-Jalapeno Margaritas

August 23, 2013

I love infused alcohol and am always looking for fun, new recipes, so when I came across this great one for Mango Jalapeno Margaritas, I knew I found a winner!

I whipped up the mango syrup and infused tequila the night before, then tripled the recipe in a pitcher and served it up to some very receptive guests!



  • I added a whole mango to the syrup (rather than a half)
  • Start with less syrup then add more depending on your taste
  • I added some extra lime juice and also topped it with some seltzer water
