Description

This agave margarita recipe is sweetened to perfection with agave nectar, giving this classic cocktail a little upgrade!

  • 1 1/2 ounces fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce agave nectar
  • 1/2 ounce Triple Sec
  • Kosher salt or flaky sea salt, for the rim
  • Ice, for serving (try clear ice)
  • For the garnish: Lime wedge

Instructions

  1. Cut a notch in a lime wedge, then run the lime around the rim of a glass. Dip the edge of the rim into a plate of salt (or for a festive look, use Margarita Salt).
  2. Place all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with 1 handful ice cubes and shake until cold.
  3. Strain the margarita into the glass with the salted rim. Fill the glass with ice and serve.
