Margarita Smackdown: The Typical Margarita

Today is national margarita day. In honor of the occasion we tried out four different margarita recipes to discover what is the best classic margarita. We’ll be releasing these recipes throughout the week so stay tuned in and give us your feedback on which margarita you think is the best.

“Typical” margarita recipe:
1 oz. tequila
0.5 oz Triple Sec
1.5 oz sweet and sour mix
splash of lime
