Margarita - Straight Up

Andy Pearson

Andy says...

The most famous Tequila cocktail known to man

A classic cocktail you may take a break from, but you always end up going back.

How to make a Margarita - Straight Up cocktail at home


  • 40ml Quality Tequila (By that I mean it needs to say 100% de Agave on the label)
  • 30ml Fresh Lime Juice
  • 20ml Cointreau
  • Garnish - Add salt to half the rim of the glass


  • Salt half the rim of a pre-chilled glass by rubbing the edge with a lime wedge
  • Throw away the lime and roll the side of the glass into a saucer containing a mixture of table salt and sea salt flakes (Think Maldon!)
  • Pour all the ingredients into a shaker, add ice and shake
  • Fine strain into your pre-prepared glass

Andy's Top Tips -

  • I recommend only covering half the glass with salt to leave your options open!
  • Use Blanco (silver) Tequila for a light fresh taste or Reposado Tequila for more depth of flavour and colour (as pictured here)
