Let’s establish the fact that I have tried and experimented with making just about every classic margarita recipe imaginable. From jalapeño to skinny to frozen mango… we’ve shaken, stirred, and blended them all over the years. And had a really good time doing it, I might add.

But these days when I find myself craving that unmistakeable combination of good tequila and lime juice, I usually turn to the classic version that’s become our go-to.

There’s nothing fancy about it — it’s just a simple ratio of tequila, fresh-squeezed lime juice, Cointreau, and agave syrup that we’ve always got on hand. No matter how many times we make this recipe, the first sip never fails to leave us saying, “Wow, that is really damn good.”

A few notes for ultimate margarita-making success:
