The Perfect Margarita Recipe

Most of you know that I host an Instagram Live every Tuesday at 7:00 PM (cst) called “Tips and Tequila” where I drink a margarita and invite one of my lovely IG friend to share 3 tips from their area of expertise!

Most Tuesdays you’ll find me drinking a classic (AKA perfect) margarita. To make this marg all you need to remember is 3, 2, 1 :

- 3 parts Reposado Tequila

- 2 parts either Triple Sec OR Raspberry liqueur

- 1 part fresh lime juice


Put all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake and serve over 2-3 ice cubes! Using Triple Sec will give you a more citrus-y taste. Raspberry liqueur (AKA chambord) will give you a slightly sweeter, berry-tasting marg!

Note: If you’re like my husband and prefer sweeter, less strong margaritas, you can add a squeeze of agave nectar to your cocktail shaker, or top your margarita with some Bai Bubbles (we like the grapefruit flavor). I also love adding a slice of fresh jalapeño for a spicy kick!

Note: I usually use the “jigger” on top of the cocktail shaker to measure out the liquids, 1.5 ounces tequila, 1 ounce Triple Sec/Chambord, .5 ounces lime juice.  You can also use measuring cups or any other method, as long as you stick to the 3, 2, 1 ratio!
