Perfection is possible with this Perfect Margarita recipe. After one sip you’ll be speaking Spanish, in Russian.

It’s generally agreed that the components of a classic Margarita are tequila, triple sec, and fresh lime juice. Sure that’s a classic margarita but not a RumShopRyan Perfect Margarita. Only the best tequila and splash of delicious make this concoction perfect in my book.

All self-respecting margaritas are made with only 100 percent agave tequila (I’m a fan of high-quality Cuervo 1800, Patrón Silver, Cabo Wabo, or Don Julio) and Cointreau.

Perfect Margarita Recipe


  • 1 1/2 oz. Cuervo or 1800 gold tequila
  • 3/4 oz. Cointreau
  • 3/4 oz. Grand Marnier
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. orange juice
  • 2 oz. sour mix
  • Lime garnish

If using salt, place in a shallow dish. Moisten the rim of a rocks glass with lime juice from your sliced lime garnish, then dip in salt. Fill the glass with ice; add tequila, lime juice, and Cointreau; and stir a few times until chilled, then add the splash of orange juice. Raise glass and toast.
