  3. Add the rye and cognac, fill the mixing glass with ice and stir until well-chilled.

Classic Margarita


2 oz. Tequila
1 oz. Cointreau
1.5 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
Optional: ¼-½ oz. (or up to your taste level) Simple Syrup
Optional: Margarita salt for the rim of the glass

  • Run lime wedge around the outer rims of 2 rocks glasses and dip rims in salt. Set aside.
  • In a cocktail shaker, combine tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice (and simple syrup if using). Fill with ice and shake until thoroughly chilled, about 15 seconds (the bottom of a metal shaker should frost over).
