The margarita cocktail are one of the easy cocktails, perfect for parties. It is the most popular cocktail in the United States. First made it an American in Mexico, home of tequila. The first cocktail margarita was made with Cointreau as second component and not triple sec as it is preferred nowadays.
Pour tequila, Cointreau and lemon juice in a shaker, fulfill with ice and shake well.
Strain into a chilled margarita glass or martini glass and on the glass rim put some salt.
Finally garnish with 2 lemon slices for the aesthetic part of the margarita cocktail recipe.
In order to put salt on the glass rim "sweep" around the rim with a slice of lemon and then touch the rim of the glass in a dish with salt.
Optionally you can add some crushed ice.
