Classic Margarita

Active Time: 5 minutes   |   Total Time: 5 minutes   |   Serves 1

  • 1 lime, plus more for serving
  • Kosher salt
  • 1½ ounces tequila blanco
  • 1 ounce Cointreau

​Cut the lime in half. Rub the cut part of the lime along the rim of a 12-ounce glass. Pour some kosher salt on a small plate and gently shake into a thin layer (the size of the circle of salt should be a little larger than the glass). Dip the rim of the glass in the salt.

Squeeze the lime into a cocktail shaker. Add the tequila and Cointreau. Add 2 handfuls of ice. Cover tightly. Shake vigorously.

Fill the prepared glass with ice (all the way to the top) and pour in the margarita. Add another small squeeze of lime.
