My wife, Shelley, loves, loves, loves here Tequila and while these days she prefers a simple shot with Lime on the side, she also has a serious Margarita hankering and here is the Margarita that always blows her away.


  • 1 shot good Tequila (opinions vary but my wife likes 1800 Silver)
  • 1 shot Orange Liquor (TripleSec, Patron Citron, etc)
  • 1 shot Lime Juice (if bottled, buy the Kroger brand; not RealLime)


  1. In a cocktail glass, put ice.
  2. Combine all ingredients.
  3. Stir.
