How to make the perfect Margarita

The Margarita is a Tequila based Mexican classic which can be served with ice, frozen (blended with ice) or straight up without ice. Like many cocktails there is no consensus on its origin though I believe it was invented in 1941 at Hussong’s Cantina by Don Carlos Orozco.

I normally rim only half the glass with salt, giving the drinker the option. If you have used premium Tequila, you’ve earned the right to call it a ‘Deluxe’ Margarita.

The lime gives the Margarita a summertime feel.
