The Original Margarita Recipe

Randi Reed, editor-in-chief of the website MusicBizAdvice.com, saw Margarita Sames on a talk show in the early 1990s, and reports her original Margarita recipe and tips for making a good Margarita:

  • “First, you must use a good tequila—one that is authentic, made in Jalisco, Mexico. I prefer a white tequila, not any of this gold stuff.”
  • MargaritaNo blenders ever. Shake it or stir the drink in a pitcher. Do not strain.
  • Use Cointreau, not the less expensive and less flavorful Triple Sec.
  • The original Margarita recipe: 3 jiggers tequila, “or you can do 2,” 1 jigger Cointreau and 1 jigger lime juice.

  • Serve over ice cubes, “not those little chips.”
  • “Most people over-salt their Margarita glasses. I take a piece of lime and go all around the rim of the glass with it. Then I put regular kitchen salt on a paper towel. Just put the glass down into the salt and then pick it straight up.” This works better than using a saucer or the Margarita salt container.
