This homemade margarita is our absolute favorite. With just a handful of ingredients you’ll be on your way to Happy Hour! In this margarita recipe we make our own delicious mix using lemon and lime juice and a simple syrup.
- 1 Lime Wedge plus more for garnish if desired
- Coarse Salt for the Glass Rim
- 1½ ounces Tequila
- 1 ounce Grand Marnier or other orange-flavored liqueur
- 4 ounces Margarita Mix
Add the coarse salt to a small plate.
Run the lime wedge around the rim of the glass to moisten.
Place the glass in the salt and press it gently. The salt will adhere to the rim.
Fill the glass with ice
Half fill a cocktail shaker with ice
Add the tequila, orange liqueur and the margarita mix to the cocktail shaker. Cover the shaker tightly and shake well.
Strain the margarita into your prepared glass, garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy!
