The Perfect Margarita

Rating: 4.47 stars
Mastering the margarita requires a certain amount of practice, but once you dial-in your perfect ratio, it's a really easy cocktail to replicate. The classic recipe is 3 parts tequila, 2 parts triple sec, and 1 part freshly squeezed lime juice, and you should probably start off pretty close to that, but my personal favorite proportions are 4-3-2.

I have been asked by everyone, 'How do you make your margaritas?' Everyone says I make the best. I like them, maybe you will too.

Beer Margaritas

Rating: 4.75 stars
Who would believe that beer would be the perfect solution to eradicating fluorescent green margaritas? Well, it is! Best to use not-so-micro brews to avoid an overpowering beer flavor. Use the limeade can to measure the ingredients, and adjust with extra water if the mixture seems too sweet. Straining the pulp is always a good idea, unless, of course, you like pulp!

Presidente Margarita

Rating: 5 stars
If you love a famous Mexican food chain's 'presidential' margarita, you'll love this recipe. The key is good tequila and brandy.

Jalapeno and Cucumber Margarita

Rating: 4.62 stars
Nothing tastes better than tequila and jalapeno; the cucumber adds a freshness that helps to mute the jalapeno's bite. The longer it chills, the more jalapeno and cucumber infuses into the tequila. Serve over ice in a salt-rimmed glass, garnished with cucumber slices.

Margarita Jell-O® Shots

Rating: 5 stars
I had to make hundreds of Jell-O® shots for a wedding, so I decided to have fun with them and try out some new mixes. This was my margarita-flavored shot, a bit strong but good if you want variety with your selection. If you want them more palatable, substitute water for a bit of the alcohol.

The Perfect Blended Margarita

Rating: 3.5 stars

This beats any pre-made margarita mix you can find. I prefer mine straight-up, but you can add salt to the rim if you like.
