The Perfect Margarita

Posted 4:22 PM by

In search of the perfect margarita?
Look no further. It turns out, a few ingredients and high quality liquor is all you need. Currently, we’d recommend using our hand selected single barrel from El Mayor. This Reposado is smooth and well balanced and will make your margaritas the talk of you Cinco de Mayo party. Pair the El Mayor Reposado with some Grand Marnier, fresh lime juice and some simple syrup and you have yourself a recipe for the perfect margarita. If you want to go with simple, yet still very tasty… substitute the fresh lime juice and simple syrup with your favorite margarita mix and you’re set.


  • 2 ounces Grand Marnier
  • 1 1/2 ounces Tequila
  • 2 ounces lime juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces simple syrup
  • orange + lemon + lime slices for garnish
  • salt for the rim


Rim the ridge of your glass with a lime wedge and dip in margarita salt. Fill the glass with ice. In a cocktail shaker, combine tequila, grand marnier, simple syrup and lime juice with ice, and shake for about 30 seconds. Pour over ice and squeeze in lemon, lime and orange slices.

This recipe can be easily doubled, quadrupled, etc. Since everyone’s tastes differ, add simple syrup 1/4 cup at a time and go from taste. Also, if you’re planning on making multiple margaritas, we suggest buying some lime juice as opposed to squeezing limes all day.

Don't forget, Kahn's has a wide selection of shakers and glassware, as well as all the mixers you would want.
