This drink is a real treat from South of the Border! Take a cocktail glass and rub the lime wedge around the rim, dip rim in the salt.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ oz tequila blanco
  • 1 oz triple sec
  • ½ oz lime juice or sweet & sour
  • Bar salt
  • Lime squeeze

Instructions

In a shaker with ice combine tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. Shake well a strain into the cocktail glass.

Variations:

On the Rocks: Fill a salted bucket glass with ice. Build this ‘Maggie’ right in the glass.

Frozen margarita: Blend ingredients with a scoop of ice, serve in a salted large stem margarita glass. Frozen-fruit margaritas can be made by adding a scoop of fresh fruit (e.g., strawberries, peaches, or pineapple).

Blue margarita: Substitute Blue Curaçao for triple sec.

Cadillac margarita: Use tequila reposado and substitute Cointreau for triple sec. Float a half oz of Grand Marnier on top.

Melon margarita: Substitute Midori for triple sec.

Strawberry: Substitute strawberry liqueur for triple sec.
