Margarita Variation

Now, I love a good traditional margarita as much as the next person. Especially traditional – not the ones masquerading as margaritas from family restaurants and rubbish bars that use lime cordial or, even worse, margarita mix. But this one is a variation that I think could rival the original…

The traditional margarita should be, in my eyes, 1/3 triple sec (or Cointreau or Grand Marnier), 1/3 Tequila and 1/3 lemon juice. Salt the rim of the glass if you want too. This is the perfect way to end a weekend, before you have to start contemplating the work you have to do in the coming 5 days! I don’t think you can go wrong with this.

A variation on the traditional margarita. I hope you enjoy it.


  • 30ml Tequila
  • 30ml Triple Sec
  • 10ml Orange Juice
  • 20ml Lime Juice


  1. Add all ingredients to an ice-filled cocktail shaker and shake to your desired taste. The less time shaking, the less diluted the cocktail will be from the ice melting. The more you shake, the more water will be in the finished drink. I say no more than 10 shakes.
