One of the most popular cocktails is the margarita, which is renowned worldwide. This classic cocktail typically consists of tequila, orange liqueur and fresh lime juice, often served in a glass with salt on the rim.

The origin of the cocktail is not known; many stories abound. Obviously, all originate in and around Mexico and Texas since Tequila is the primary ingredient. 

Margaritas are mostly shaken and served either straight up in the margarita glass or over the ice in an old-fashioned glass. They may also be blended with ice and served frozen. It's quite an easy drink to make and here are some recipes beginning with the Classic and followed by some of my favourite variations.

Be bold and experiment with your own concoctions as Tequila lends itself well to different flavours. In all recipes, pour all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker, fill with ice cubes, shake it well and strain into the glass.
