The Perfect Margarita

CocktailsMeghan ColvinComment

The Netherlands is known for many extraordinary things. Producing a great margarita is not one of them. As a result, my at-home cocktail making skills have improved greatly. This is a good/bad situation for obvious reasons. 

The ingredients in a classic margarita are quite simple. The tricky part is finding just the right proportions. It took a few taste tests (and a couple headaches) but we think we’ve mastered it. 

// RECIPE //


  • 1 1/2 ounce Gold Tequila
  • 1 ounce Cointreau
  • 1/2 ounce Agave Syrup
  • 1 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice

(makes 1)


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Shake well!
  3. Serve over ice with or without salt on the rim. Garnish with a lime wedge.
