Margarita cocktails pair well with a variety of ingredients. There are so many different flavored margarita recipes to try at home.
Margaritas are one of the most popular cocktails at bars. A basic margarita contains tequila, lime juice, and orange liquor. They are typically served in a short cocktail glass with a salt rim. Some bars also serve frozen margaritas, which is essentially a margarita slushie.
Since margaritas are such a simple cocktail, they are also fun to make at home. You don’t need to be a mixologist or even good at making a cocktail to make a decent margarita. Due to their basic nature, margaritas work well with additional flavors added. Common margarita flavors include strawberry, jalapeno, or pineapple. But they can also be exceptionally unique, like this Cardamom Margarita from Mint and Twist or my Christmas margarita.

Cocktail Strainer – A cocktail strainer fits over the open end of a cocktail shaker glass. Pour the margarita through it so the ice stays in the shaker.
Jigger – The jigger is like a cocktail measuring cup. Typically, one end holds an ounce of liquid and the other end holds an ounce and a half.
