Best Fresh & Fruity Top-Shelf Margaritas

Best Fresh & Fruity Top-Shelf Margaritas

The most amazing margarita recipe ever! These simple cocktails perfectly balance the crisp flavor of tequila with the sweetness of organic agave nectar, Cointreau, and fresh citrus juice. 

Although in my mind EVERY day is National Margarita Day, the proper date to celebrate this fun, festive cocktail is closing in on us this week, and I will certainly be celebrating. 

This recipe for super fresh margaritas gets made A LOT in my house. It is fairly simple to keep the ingredients on hand, and shaking up a little tequila is one of my favorite ways to enjoy a Friday night. 

When it comes to a good margarita, I like to avoid using any mix and go straight for the fresh fruit. I am also not one for a salted rim, but if you are, check out this article from The Kitchn about how to do it up right. To double or triple this recipe, just do a little math.

Prep Time = less than 5 minutes / Active Time = less than 5 minutes / Yield = 2 cocktails 

Ingredients: 

  • 3 ounces El Jimador Blanco Tequila
  • 1 ounce organic agave nectar
  • 1 ounce Cointreau
  • 1/2 lime 
  • 1/2 lemon 
  • 1/2 orange or tangerine 
  • kosher salt (optional) 

Steps:

  1. After rolling on the counter to increase juice flow, slice 1 lime, 1 lemon, and 1 orange or tangerine in half. Juice one-half of each fruit, setting aside the other half for your next cocktail (wink, wink). 
  2. Into the basin of an empty shaker, pour tequila, agave nectar, Cointreau, and fruit juices. 
  3. Top with ice and shake until the lid of the shaker is frosted. 
  4. Pour over ice into lowball glass with a salted rim (optional).
