There are countless stories that claim to herald the origin of the Margarita, and to the best of my knowledge none of them have been definitively identified as the real one. Go ahead and debate this topic amongst yourselves if you wish, but in this episode we will instead focus on how to make a proper Margarita using silver tequila, Cointreau, and fresh squeezed lime juice.
2 oz Tequila
1 1/3 oz Cointreau
2/3 oz fresh lime juice
Shake with ice, and strain into a cocktail glass.
Garnish with a wedge of lime.
