Margarita

by Muddle Muddle | 60 Second Cocktails



Locko

The sun is setting over the Muddle Muddle office in Southern California and the Casamigos just got broken out for team margs. If you can spring for it, Cointreau is worth the extra money and will noticeably elevate your margarita. Cheers! The margarita is a cocktail consisting of tequila, triple sec (such as Cointreau) and lime or lemon juice, often served with salt on the rim of the glass. [note 1] The drink is served shaken with ice (on the rocks), blended with ice (frozen margarita), or without ice (straight up). Although it has become acceptable to serve a margarita in a wide variety of glass types, ranging from cocktail and wine glasses to pint glasses and even large schooners, the drink is traditionally served in the eponymous margarita glass, a stepped-diameter variant of a cocktail glass or champagne coupe somewhat resembling an inverted sombrero.
