The Best Margarita

The best margaritas are made very simply with only 100 percent agave tequila.  We like to use the high-quality Cuervo 1800, Patron Silver, Herradura, or Don Julio.  We especially love Reposada which is a style of tequila where tequila is aged in oak barrels for anywhere from 2 to 12 months.  This creates a much smoother tequila than non-aged tequila.  There is no sugar or added ingredients for the tequila to hid behind, so you want to use top shelf.  A splash of Cointreau and you're all set!
