The Bottom Line

While margarita requires only three ingredients- tequila, triple sec, and lime juice, there is a myriad of ways that you can add a little spin to this classic cocktail. Add some summer flavors by pairing the drinks with fresh seasonal fruits. If you want a little texture in your drinks, you can substitute the fine sugar with granulated or coarse sugar. However, remember not to use powdered sugar, as they are mixed with starch you might end up with cornstarch in your margarita! I hope you’ll enjoy these margarita recipes!
