How to Make a Margarita

Margaritas are the most popular tequila-based drink in the United States, though it's commonly accepted that the margarita was developed in Mexico in the 1930's. Margaritas are usually served in a margarita glass with a salted rim.

Moisten the rim of the Margarita glass with a damp paper towel. Then place the margarita glass rim side down into a shallow sprinkling of course salt.

For a margarita over the rocks, fill the glass with crushed ice. Add tequila, cointreau or triple sec and the lime juice. Stir well.

For frozen margaritas, add the crushed ice and margarita ingredients to a blender. Blend until smooth. Serve in a salt rimmed glass. Party-zine Logo
