Margarita Ingredients

Margaritas are incredibly simple to make with just a few ingredients:

Chef John recommends a good quality 100% agave white tequila.

Triple Sec
Use a high-quality triple sec for the best results.

You’ll need freshly squeezed lime juice, plus lime slices for garnishing.

Use coarse salt for the rim of the glass.

How to Make a Margarita

When you make a margarita you’ll want to follow Chef John’s 4:3:2 ratio — which is different from the classic 3:2:1 ratio for a margarita. Here’s how to make the perfect margarita:

Prepare the Glass

Moisten the rim of the glass with a lime wedge, then dip the glass in coarse salt. Add ice cubes to the glass and chill the glass in the freezer until ready to serve.

Make the Margarita

Combine tequila, triple sec, and lime juice in a shaker with ice. Shake until the outside of the shaker is frosted.


Strain the margarita into the prepared glass and serve with a lime wedge.
