Classic Margarita Recipe

Classic Margarita Recipe

The Margarita is such a popular drink that it's almost impossible to beat! This may be why there are fewer tequila cocktails than there are vodka, gin, or whiskey. Even so, the cocktail is incredibly simple and easy to make. The sweet, sour, and salty drink harmoniously combines and perfectly balances only three ingredients. It's a crowd favorite and easy to remember, making it ideal for backyard BBQs, pool parties, or during a meal with friends. As with most cocktails with few ingredients, the result of your drink highly depends on the quality of the vodka.
