July Drink of the Month: The Classic Margarita

Since I once again waited far too long into the month to deliver a cocktail, we’re going to keep it nice and simple with a timeless favorite: the classic margarita.

Be careful, this beverage dangerous, as it is both high in alcohol content, delicious, and refreshing. Be sure to pace yourself.


  • 2 oz of tequila (silver)
  • 1 oz of lime juice
  • 1 oz of Cointreau
  • salt
  • ice
  • lime (optional, really only for aesthetic purposes)


In a chilled glass, rub lime juice on the rim and then dip the rim into your salt. Fill glass with crushed or cubed ice.

In a cocktail shaker, add tequila, lime juice, Cointreau, and ice. Shake, then strain into your chilled glass. Put a lime in there if you want to make the presentation slightly better, as it won’t really do much.
