How to Make a margarita

Salt that rim like there's no tomorrow

Margarita recipe. Made with tequila, Cointreau orange liqueur and lime juice. Shaken with ice and service in a coupe glass with a salt rim and lime garnish.

The Margarita

The Margarita first appeared in the 1930s having been (one may speculate) perfected during the Prohibition era, like so many classics. The salt may have been to disguise the drink as a salt-shaker. 

Serve in a martini glass or coupette

Equipment you'll need

Boston Shaker

A two piece shaker consisting of one stainless steel can and a robust glass. The Boston allows enough capacity to aerate the drink

Fine Strainer

The fine strainer removes fine ice shards and other impurities that may influence the quality of the drink

Ice Tongs (optional)

Be hygienic!

Hawthorn Strainer

Place on the top of the Boston Shaker to remove large objects such as ice cubes

Measuring Jigger

Ideally, a jigger should have a 25ml and 50ml measuring cup

Pour Spouts (optional)

Place in the top of your spirit bottles to ensure an even and clean pour


  • 35ml Tequila
  • 15ml Orange Liqueur
  • 20ml Lime juice
  • 5ml Agave Syup
  • Cubed Ice


Add all ingredients to the glass half of your Boston Shaker. Fill the glass with cubed ice.

Place the tin over the top and gently pat with your hand to form a tight seal. Shake hard for 10 seconds.


Split your Boston tin and place the Hawthorn strainer on top of the steel can. Pour through the Fine strainer into a martini glass and garnish salt on the rim. 


Serve in a 6 ounce martini or coupette glass
