- 2 ounces tequila
- 1 ounce orange liqueur
- 3/4 ounce fresh lime juice
- 1/2 ounce simple syrup (optional)
- In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the tequila, orange liquor, lime juice, and simple syrup (if using). Shake well. Strain into a margarita or rocks glass.
- Tip: If you prefer your margarita in a salt-rimmed glass, rub the lime along the rim of the glass. Place some coarse salt on a small plate; do not substitute table salt. Dip the rim of the glass into the salt.
