two glasses of margarita with blue cocktail umbrellas

Another classic cocktail for Wimbledon fortnight – a little sourness to offset the sugared strawberries and chocolate truffles. And definitely a favourite for many.

Margarita – glass


1.5 oz Tequila (the more aged the tequila, the better the drink!)

0 .75 oz Triple Sec or Cointreau

0.75 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice


Lime Wedges



Shake the Tequila, lime juice and Triple Sec with the ice.

Sprinkle a few teaspoons of salt over the surface of a small plate or saucer.

Rub a wedge of lime along the rim of a martini glass (or larger if you prefer!) and then press into the salt so that the entire rim is covered

Add some of the ice to the glass if desired.

Strain the mixture into the glass.

Garnish with a lime wedge.
