Margaritas are the cocktails known for their sweet taste, salted rim and party-starting capabilities. This classic, tequila-based drink is one of the most popular cocktails in the United States and though it’s typically made with the same three ingredients (tequila, Cointreau/triple sec and lemon/lime juice), throughout the years many new flavors have been added to the original recipe. The types of margaritas you can have are nearly endless with different flavors of liqueurs and fruit juices ranging in everything from sweetness down to the color of the cocktail.
