About the Recipe
The Margarita is a classic cocktail made with tequila, lime juice, and orange liqueur, typically served in a salt-rimmed glass and garnished with a lime wheel. It is a popular drink that is often associated with Mexican culture and is considered a summertime favorite due to its refreshing taste. The Margarita can be served on the rocks or blended and frozen, and it's often garnished with a salt rim on the glass. The drink is a perfect balance of sweet, sour, and strong, making it a popular choice for many cocktail lovers. Margaritas can be customized with the addition of different fruits or flavors, such as strawberry, raspberry or mango, to give it a different twist.
