Expert Tips

Prepare different flavored margaritas by adding 1 cup of your favorite fruit to the blender.

Among the most popular cocktails in Los Angeles, a place with so much Mexican influence that celebrates cultural diversity, is the Margarita. To take advantage of the plethora of Mexican restaurants in L.A., I make it a point to sample and try different Mexican dishes and drinks each time I go out. Fortunately, I’ve found some marvelous places that have hit the spot and I've even learned how to prepare many of these meals. Without a doubt, one of the basic cocktails that my Mexican friends have taught me to prepare is the "classic" margarita. It's a refreshing drink that's served in all kinds of celebrations. Below is my favorite of all the cocktail recipes I've learned over time, shared by one of my barman friends. Enjoy!

Directions

  • 1 Put the ice, tequila, triple sec and lemon juice in a blender and blend until smooth like a slushy.
  • 2 Run a lime wedge along the rim of the glasses you be serving the margaritas in. Pour some of the margarita salt out onto a small plate and dip the rim of each glass in the salt to line.
  • 3 Pour the margarita mix into the glass and garnish with remaining lime wedges.
