Classic Margaritas cocktail


  1. 2 measures of tequila
  2. 1 measure of orange liqueur, such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier
  3. Squeeze fresh lime juice


  1. 1. Fill a shaker with ice and mix together two measures of tequila to one measure of orange liqueur (traditionally triple sec but Cointreau or Grand Marnier will do).
  2. 2. Squeeze in some fresh lime juice and shake well. Strain into salt-rimmed glasses and serve immediately.

Chef's tip

For a daiquiri version, whizz together in a blender with lots of ice to make a slushy texture and again, serve swiftly.
