Did you know there's only 4 ingredients in the perfect Classic Margarita on the rocks (not including the ice ???? so I guess 5 but water never really counts ????). Just 4! It's ridiculously simple, and just SO good. Concerning ingredients, I prefer to go for the good stuff. If you're making a margarita from scratch, definitely invest in a bottle of Cointreau. This orange liquor has great, yet subtle flavor that won't overpower your drink and will literally save you the headache of the over sweetened, $6-8 bottles of triple sec. Totally worth it.
I don't know about you, but I one hundred thousand percent prefer my Classic Margaritas on the rocks. Not going to lie, those first I-just-turned-21 days, I was definitely all about a blended margarita. Nope. Not anymore. Blending the ice inevitably waters down your drink much quicker and also takes away from the sweet orange of the Coiuntreau, the tang of the lime juice, and of course, the delicious burn of Tequila. On the rocks, a classic margarita truly shines.
Lastly, I know it's a pain but try and use fresh lime juices as best you can. It can be so obxnious juicing all those limes but sip a margarita with fresh limes versus one with bottled juice, and you'll instantly taste the difference. Trust.
PS. Pair these Classic Margaritas with some of my favorites over in the Mexican recipes section. Sure to make an appearance at my table this year? Mango Salsa and my go to Black Bean Enchilada Casserole. Drink up friends ????!Print
