Shake Up Your Summer with the Perfect Margarita

Shake Up Your Summer with the Perfect Margarita
17 May 2024

Welcome to the cocktail oasis, where we're mixing up a storm and serving you the ultimate summer sipper – the perfect Margarita. With the help of the Andrew James Cocktail Set, we'll show you how to craft a refreshing and citrusy Margarita that's guaranteed to transport you to sun-soaked beaches and tropical paradise. So, grab your cocktail shaker, squeeze those limes, and let's shake things up! 



  • 2 oz (60ml) silver tequila 

  • 1 oz (30ml) triple sec or orange liqueur 

  • 1 oz (30ml) freshly squeezed lime juice 

  • 1/2 oz (15ml) simple syrup (optional, adjust to taste) 

  • Ice cubes 

  • Salt, for rimming (optional) 

  • Lime wedge, for garnish 



1. Prep Your Glass: 

If you prefer a salt-rimmed glass, start by moistening the rim of a Margarita glass (or any glass of your choice) with a lime wedge. Dip the rim into a shallow plate filled with salt, rotating it to coat the entire rim evenly. Set aside to dry while you prepare the cocktail. 

2. Shake It Up: 

Fill your Andrew James Cocktail Shaker with ice cubes. Add the silver tequila, triple sec, freshly squeezed lime juice, and simple syrup (if using) to the shaker. Secure the lid tightly and shake vigorously for about 10-15 seconds to chill the mixture and combine the ingredients thoroughly. 

3. Strain and Serve: 

Using the built-in strainer on your Andrew James Cocktail Shaker, strain the Margarita mixture into your prepared glass. If you prefer your Margarita on the rocks, you can pour the drink directly over ice in the glass. For a smoother texture, strain the mixture into a fresh glass without ice. 

4. Garnish and Enjoy: 

Garnish your Margarita with a lime wedge on the rim of the glass for an extra burst of citrus aroma. Feel free to get creative with additional garnishes like a slice of fresh orange or a sprig of mint. Sip and savor the refreshing flavors of your homemade Margarita – it's the perfect balance of sweet, tart, and tangy. 

Tips for Perfection: 

  • Use high-quality ingredients, including premium silver tequila and freshly squeezed lime juice, for the best flavor. 

  • Adjust the sweetness level of your Margarita by adding more or less simple syrup to suit your taste preferences. 

  • For a fun twist, try experimenting with flavored liqueurs or adding a splash of freshly squeezed orange juice for extra citrusy goodness. 

  • Don't forget to shake the Margarita vigorously to ensure proper mixing and to chill the drink to perfection.
