Try this classic margarita cocktail – a mix of tequila, orange liqueur and lime juice.
- 2 measures of tequila
- 1 measure of orange liqueur, such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier
- Squeeze fresh lime juice
- 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).
- Squeeze in some fresh lime juice and shake well. Strain into salt-rimmed glasses and serve immediately.
For a daiquiri version, whizz together in a blender with lots of ice to make a slushy texture and again, serve swiftly.
