  • Ice

Equipment

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Margarita glass (or any glass of your choice)

Instructions

1. Prepare the Glass

  • Rub a lime wedge around the rim of your margarita glass.
  • Dip the rim into a shallow dish of coarse salt.

2. Make the Margarita

  • Fill your cocktail shaker with ice.
  • Add tequila, Chambord, lime juice, and simple syrup to the shaker.

Tips

Make it a frozen margarita: Blend all ingredients with a cup of ice in a blender until smooth.

Customize your sweetness: Adjust the amount of simple syrup to your liking. If you don’t have simple syrup, substitute with agave nectar.

Try a spicy twist: Muddle a few slices of jalapeño with the simple syrup before adding it to the shaker.

Large batch: Easily scale up the quantities for a pitcher for a party.

Enjoy your refreshing Chambord Margarita!
