About this recipe: My father-in-law developed a taste for margaritas made from scratch during the summer they spent in Zihuatanejo during the 1960s. After decades of tinkering he has arrived at this foolproof recipe for the ultimate Mexican cocktail.


Serves: 4 

  • 150ml tequila
  • 85ml fresh lime juice
  • 30ml lime cordial
  • 85ml orange-flavoured liqueur
  • ice cubes
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • rimming salt

  1. Measure the tequila, lime juice, lime cordial and orange liqueur into a cocktail shaker and add a generous scoop of ice. Cover and shake until the shaker is frosty, about 30 seconds.
  2. Rub a lime wedge around the rim of a margarita glass and dip in salt. Fill each glass with ice. Strain equal amounts of the cocktail into the glasses to serve. Garnish with a lime wedge.
