Easy Margarita


This blender-drink classic is must-have at any summer party. For a strawberry margarita, add 1 cup sliced, frozen fresh strawberries (do not salt rim).


  • Lime wedges, for garnish (optional)

  • Coarse salt, for the rim

  • 3 tablespoons superfine sugar

  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 2 limes)

  • 1 ½ ounces gold tequila

  • 1 ¼ ounces Cointreau

  • 2 cups small ice cubes


  1. Run a wedge of lime, if using, around rims of two glasses. Invert each glass; dip rim into salt. Set aside. Combine sugar and lime juice in a bowl; stir until dissolved. Pour into a blender. Add tequila, Cointreau, and ice; process until smooth. Divide between two glasses; garnish with lime wedges, if using, and serve.
