This cocktail is so popular that its fans celebrate Margarita Day on February 22. We recommend it to those who love tequila, but would like to lighten it a bit. As the Margarita proves, tequila tastes great with citrus. Orange liqueur Cointreau adds sweetness, and lime juice gives freshness.

Step 1: You will need (for one portion):
— tequila — 40 ml / 1.3 oz
— Triple Sec syrup (or liqueur) — 20 ml / 0.7 oz
— half of a lime
— lime slice
— ice cubes
— crushed ice

Necessary utensils:
— margarita glass
— shaker
— jigger
— ice tongs
— ice scoop
— ice bucket
— squeezer

Step 2: Fill the Margarita glass with crushed ice to cool it.

Step 3: Fill the shaker with ice cubes.

Step 4: Measure 40 ml / 1.3 oz of tequila with the jigger and pour it into the shaker.

Step 5: Measure 20 ml / 0.7 oz of the Triple Sec syrup and pour it into the shaker.

Step 6: Put half of a lime into the squeezer and press to release juice into the shaker.

Step 7: Lock the shaker and shake it well, holding it with both hands by the bottom and by the cap. You should hold very tight or the shaker may open!

Step 8: Shake until the shaker has beads of sweat on the outside.

Step 9: Rub the rim of the glass with a wedge of lime and some salt.

Step 10: Pour the mix from the shaker into the glass.

Step 11: Garnish with a lime slice. The Margarita is complete!
