As you can see from the picture, I have spent my fair share of time perfecting the art of how to make a margarita. This Instructable is more about finding the margarita that you prefer vs. some random guy/gal on the Internet wants to drink.

I prefer a margarita, on the rocks, that I can just taste the tequila without it being too strong. If I wanted lemonade, I would just drink lemonade :) Figuring out just the right proportions of your ingredients will let you fine tune your recipe to match your taste preferences.

Margaritas are simple to make, but I rarely get one that I enjoy at a restaurant or bar. Here's my latest recipe that gives me a perfect margarita every time.

2 oz. (Quality) Tequila
2 oz. (Freshly Squeezed) Lime Juice
1 oz. Simple Syrup

Here's another that I have tried and liked for a while:

2 oz. Tequila
1.75 oz. Cointreau or Patron Citronge
1.75 oz. Lime Juice
1.5 oz. Simple Syrup

Step 1: Make your own lime juice

This is pretty straight forward, but you need to buy one of these.

TIP: Freeze your leftover lime juice.
Love it love it;)
