Margarita Cocktail Recipe Collection

Margaritas of Every Flavor


The Margarita is one of the cocktails that has a number of variations, in fact there are too many "Margaritas" to keep track of and many are such a stretch from the original that they are only Margaritas by name.

The Margarita is typically a mix of tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice and a sweetener. This base mix has been adapted to include almost any fruit and liqueur imaginable. Other options for a Margarita are whether to serve it neat, on the rocks or blended and to rim or not, usually with salt or sugar.

This collection of Margarita recipes spans the flavors and is an ongoing project that is updated regularly and I've included the most popular recipes at the beginning.
