Do you love margaritas as much as I do? You can use so many different fruits and flavors to customize a margarita cocktail. A classic margarita recipe uses simple ingredients; tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. I know a lot of people use sour mix, but I can't stand that stuff!

What is in a margarita?
A margarita can have a lot of different ingredients from the traditional tequila, triple sec, and sour mix to all sorts of exotic flavors.
If you love tequila as much as I do, you should also give these cocktail recipes a try:
Categories of Tequila
Tequila is one of my favorite liquors. It makes me happy, and it mixes so well in so many different cocktails. There are five categories of tequila. Tequila blanco, tequila Joven (gold), tequila reposado (aged), tequila añejo (extra rest), and tequila extra añejo, (really, really rested).
Orange liqueur is the second ingredient you will find in margaritas. There are so many choices, and types of orange liqueur. Each is subtly different, and all three work perfectly in margaritas.
Lastly, the grapefruit juice. Pink grapefruits are sweeter than their yellow counterparts. I bought Texas Ruby Red grapefruits. You can recognize these by the pink hue to their outer skin.
My pink grapefruit margarita recipe wouldn't be complete without sriracha salt.
