Best Margarita | How To

cinco de mayo

If there’s one thing I’ve learned to appreciate, it’s a well-made, handcrafted margarita. Mixing sweet and sour pre-made mix with tequila does not qualify as well-made and certainly doesn’t sit well on my waistline.

My husband and I have been on the hunt for a low-ingredient, tasty, some-what healthy (as healthy as you can get) margarita. A lot of “skinny margaritas” aren’t actually “skinny.” They still have a ton of sugar, unnatural ingredients, and truthfully taste very sweet or just don’t taste all that well.

After searching online, in restaurants, and mixing up our own concoctions, J.J. and I have finally found our favorite Margarita. Watch here for a quick tutorial.

Side note, the better tequila you use, the better it’ll taste!

How to make it:

Ingredients (yields 2):

  • 1/2 cup tequila silver
  • 2 tablespoons organic agave nectar
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • fresh lime to garnish


  1. Fill shaker with ice
  2. Add Tequila, Agave, and Lime juice. Shake well to combine all ingredients
  3. Strain into rocks glass (straight up is without ice; on the rocks is with ice)
  4. Garnish with lime slice if desired

Optional: Before pouring your margarita into your glass, rim the glass with lime juice then dip in salt.
