margarita Cocktail tips:

My two favorite types of orange liquor are Triple Sec and Cointreau. Using orange juice will not do the job but will work.

Can you make ahead?

Fridge: Make a pitcher to keep from making individual cocktails. I add the ice, right before serving.

Substitution Options:

Use different tequilas to enjoy different flavors. Silver, Anejo, and Reposado just to name a few all are aged differently and bring a unique flavor to your cocktails.
