Classic Margarita - Men's Health

In Mexico, the margarita is a simple, perfectly balanced cocktail. But as it traveled north of the border, the classic picked up a suitcase full of calories. Ditch the bottle of neon mix and return the marg to its unadulterated self.

  • Yield: 1 serving ( Serving Size: 1 )
  • Prep time: 4 Minutes
  • Cook time: 0 Minute

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 ounce(s) 100% agave silver tequila
  • 1 ounce(s) Cointreau or triple sec (or splash of OJ)
  • 1 1/2 ounce(s) lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon(s) agave syrup
  • 1 Coarse salt and a lime slice for garnish

Preparation

Pour enough salt onto a plate to cover it lightly. Rub the rim of a rocks glass with the cut side of a lime, and dip it into the salt to create a light salt rim. Add a few large ice cubes to the glass. Combine the tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, and agave syrup in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Pour, slurp, and pucker.
