5 ingredient Margarita (The Perfect Margarita) Closing Cocktail

Tonight’s Closing Cocktail is the Perfect Margarita

My perfect margarita

1.5 oz tequila- I used Patrón Silver

.5 oz Cointreau- This is important. Not Triple Sec

1.5 oz Lime Juice

Kosher Salt Rim


These are the only five ingredients in a perfect margarita. Notice that there is none of that nasty sweet and sour mix. Fresh lime juice is prefered, but I only have Rose’s at my bar so I made do. I have fresh lemon juice on hand but limes are kind of costly right now.

To build:

Set up kosher salt in a rimmer or a plate if no rimmer is available.

Rim glass with lime juice and kosher salt.

Fill glass with ice and set aside

In cocktail shaker put ice cubes, tequilla, Cointreau, and lime juice. Shake until vigorously.

Strain and pour into glass, Garnish with lime.

This is literally the only way I can drink a margarita. I would love it if “margarita” wasn’t synonymous with sugar filled neon green tequila cocktail. Or worse, when they’re blue.

I don’t pretend to be a margarita professional, this is just personal preference. Plus I don’t think it could get any simpler. The simpler, the better in my experience.
