As the 5th of May rapidly approaches, our taste buds gravitate towards a certain classic cocktail, the Margarita. Two years in a row this adult beverage has been named America’s favorite cocktail, and no other day of the year have we indulged more on this deliciously simple libation than on Cinco de Mayo!

However classic this concoction may be, one of the biggest mistakes bars and restaurants make is using artificial, over-sweet ingredients and pre-mixed recipes to save themselves money and time. This is the perfect recipe for a huge headache (literally) and dissatisfied imbibers. This Cinco de Mayo do yourself the huge favor, and don’t settle for the typical mediocre margarita recipe. Here is a fail-proof 3 ingredient margarita recipe to shake this beverage to perfection.

¡Salud!

The Classic Margarita
In a cocktail shaker add 2 parts
Herradura Tequila, 1 part Cointreau, and 1 part fresh lime juice.
The key is to make sure the lime is as fresh as possible.
Shake vigorously over ice and strain either in an optionally salted cocktail glass over new ice, or into a chilled martini/coupe glass.
