Units Scale
  • 2 oz reposado tequila
  • 1/2 oz Cointreau
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz light agave syrup


  1. Prepare the Glass:
    • Rub a lime wedge around the rim of a rocks glass and dip it in coarse salt. Add ice to the glass to chill.
  2. Mix the Cocktail:
    • In a shaker, combine the reposado tequila, fresh lime juice, Cointreau, and light agave syrup.
    • Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously until well-chilled, about 15-20 seconds.
  3. Serve:
    • Strain the mixture into the prepared rocks glass filled with fresh ice.
    • Optionally, garnish with a lime wheel or wedge.


This ratio of tequila, lime juice, and agave syrup is a classic starting point, but feel free to adjust the sweetness or tartness to your liking. Some prefer a 2:1:1 ratio for a tangier drink, or a little extra agave if a sweeter cocktail is desired. Always taste and tweak to create your perfect Margarita!
