The Original Margarita was created by American socialite Margaret “Margarita” Sames when she combined two of her favourite spirits, Tequila and Cointreau orange liqueur. In celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Margarita, we present to you the “Margarita Loves Cointreau Cocktail Set” that includes everything you need to mix the Original Margarita for yourself.
30ml Cointreau orange liqueur
50ml Blanco Tequila
20 ml Fresh Lime Juice
How to Mix:
- Wet Margarita glass rim with lime and press into salt.
- Combine all ingredients in a shaker and add ice.
- Shake and strain into salt-rimmed Margarita glass.
- Garnish with a lime wheel.
As Margarita Sames would say, “A Margarita without Cointreau is not worth its salt”
