Cinco de Mayo is on a Friday this year, which couldn’t be more perfect amirite?!
Last year we posted our favorite mango margarita recipe in celebration of the holiday, so we decided this year to again post a fun, festive marg recipe.
This one is super easy and refreshing! When I originally found this recipe, the so called “best margarita you’ll ever have” I was intrigued. I’ve made it quite a few times now always thinking yes this is seriously the best classic margarita of liiiiife!
Ground sea salt
2 ounces (1/4 cup) tequila (labeled white, silver or blanco, I used El Padrino)
1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) fresh lime juice
1 ounce (2 tablespoons) fresh orange juice (adjust based on desired sweetness)
1 teaspoon simple syrup or light agave nectar (adjust based on desired sweetness)
1 lime wedge or round, for garnish
Pour layer of salt onto small plate.
Slice off a small piece of lime and run the edge along the rim of your glasses.
Dip the tip of your glass and roll it side to side to coat the rim.
Add ice to glasses and set aside.
Fill cocktail shaker with ice.
Pour in the tequila, freshly squeezed lime and orange juice and simple sugar OR agave nectar.
Put on the lid and shake for 30 seconds.
Strain the liquid into your glass and garnish with a slice of lime.
Hope you enjoy!
Salud to a great Cinco de Mayo!
