3 Ingredient Classic Margarita



Ready In:

5 minutes



Good For:

Taco Tuesday! (Or any other day that fits your fancy)

The perfect 3 ingredient classic margarita cocktail to pair with tacos, nachos, burritos, guacamole – the list goes on! The only requirement for this is that you have a good time while drinking it!

Notes: Double this recipe for two margaritas, or continue to scale up if making a pitcher.

Triple Sec is a sweeter liqueur, so there is no need for additional sweeteners. If you are using Cointreau and want a sweeter margarita, add a few drops of simple syrup or agave syrup to taste. If you like your classic margarita dry, use Cointreau with no syrup. 


  • 1 1/2 oz silver tequila(I like Jose Quervo Silver)
  • 1 oz Triple Sec
  • 1 oz fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • Ice
  • Optional: Sea salt for the rim


        Prep Ingredients

        Run a lime wedge around the top of a margarita glass. Cover a small plate with sea salt and dip the rim to cover. 


        Mix Cocktail

        Add Tequila, Triple Sec, and Lime juice to a shaker. Add cubed ice on top of ingredients (about halfway). Shake generously for 10 seconds.

        Finish and serve

        Take a slice of lime and place it along the edge of the glass. Add classic margarita mixture. 

        Sip and enjoy your simple classic margarita! Cheers!
