The Best Lemon Margarita
Try this bright twist on a classic margarita. The best Lemon Margarita has a double dose of intense lemon to make a refreshing tequila cocktail.
Cinco de Mayo, cocktails, Drinks, Summer Drink
Tequila, blanco or silver, chilled
simple syrup, chilled
Limoncello lemon liqueur, chilled
Pour the tequila, sugar syrup, Limoncello, and simple syrup in a cocktail mixer or jar.
Cover the container and shake to combine the ingredients.
Spread some salt in a shallow dish wide enough for the rims of your glasses. Cut a slit in the lemon wedge and rub the lemon around the rims of the glasses to wet them.
Dip the rims of two margarita glasses into the salt. Carefully add ice cubes to the prepared glasses.
Pour the lemon-tequila mixture over the ice, being careful not to knock salt off the rims.
Serve and enjoy the drinks immediately!
Chill the separate ingredients before assembling the drinks. Or, combine the liquid ingredients in a jar and store it in the fridge until it's time to serve the drinks.
Salt on the rims is up to you, of course. Feel free to omit it, or even try some fine sugar on the rims instead.
