A Margarita after a long days work is a great way to end the day. Making one at home doesn't need to seem so daunting. Making a great, mouthwatering margarita can be done easy peasy!

Go to the Store or order online and get:
- Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila
- Jose Cuervo Margarita Mix
- Rose's Sweetened Lime Juice
- Minute Maid Orange Juice (Yes, it is my secret weapon!)
- 1 lime
- Margarita Salt
If you want to get exact in your measurements, order this. It is a measuring tool from behind the bar called a jigger. The one above is from Oneida. I have had mine from Oneida since I've been married and it has held up quite impressively for the past 11 years.
I used a 16 oz pint glass. It is the standard bar pint glass you'd see in your local bar.
Get two glasses out.
Fill one with ice
Open the container of salt and pour the a little of the salt onto a plate or its included lid of the container.
Cut your lime into wedges.
Fill the one with ice with 1 oz of tequila, 1/2 oz Rose's Lime Juice, 1/2 oz Minute Maid Orange Juice (secret weapon) , fill the rest of the glass with Jose Cuervo Margarita Mix a squeezed slice of lime. Pour the one glass into the empty glass. Repeat pouring it back and forth twice, this ensures all the liquids mix properly. Before you pour it the final time, take a lime wedge and run it along the rim of the glass. Now push the rim in the margarita salt. Now pour the margarita into the salt-rimmed glass. Finish with a straw and a garnish with a squeezed lime wedge. Voila! You've made a margarita.
Here's a video of me making it!
Making great drinks is all about portion mostly but it does matter what the ingredients are. And always drink responsibly y'all!
