Best-ever margarita

    5 min

    The secret to this margarita is the addition of lemon-lime soft drink. The resulting margarita is cleaner, crisper and tastes more refined. Serve over ice for a refreshing cocktail.

    1. Rim 2 margarita glasses with salt if desired and fill with ice.
    2. Pour the tequila, lime cordial, triple sec and lemon-lime soft drink into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
    3. Hold your hand firmly over over the top of the shaker so the top doesn't pop off from the fizzy soft drink and shake vigorously.
    4. Pour into prepared margarita glasses and serve.

    Loved this drink! Used Cointreau instead of Triiple Sec and Sprite Zero for the lemon-lime soda. Did not rim the glasses with salt. Will definitely be making it again. Thanks for sharing your recipe.  -  15 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Absolutely phenomenal. All you could ever want from a margarita recipe and then some. My husband just returned from a trip to Mexico, and I had to find a recipe that was worthy to use with the bottle of Blanco Patron he brought back. This most definitely fit the bill. Thanks!!  -  14 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is the best Margarita recipe I have found yet on the Internet and I have tried out and experimented with dozens. I would call this the White Margarita had I named it. My wife thinks of it as a Dry Margarita. Either way we love it and hardly a weekend goes by that we don't whip up a batch.  -  09 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
