Here are a few Margaritas – Orange, Apple and Raspberry Margaritas. These tangy cocktails are super easy to make with just a few fresh ingredients! Margaritas! The classic margarita is a delicious party staple that everyone should know how to whip up.

What type of tequila should you use? I used a reposado tequila which is aged in a barrel 2 months to just under a year. Reposado is often considered the perfect tequila for margaritas. Two other types of tequila are joven and añejo. Joven is lighter, aged less than reposado and cheaper. While añejo is darker, aged over a year and is more expensive.

You many also want to include salt on the rim of your margaritas. You can purchase a coarser salt online or at the grocery or liquor store. Generously spread the salt on a plate large enough for the rim of the glass. Run a slice of lime around the rim of your glass. Then place the rim in the plate of salt. Pour your classic margaritas in a glass and you’re all set!

Here are some other good accompaniments for this recipe: homemade Classic Mexican Guacamole and Chile de Arbol Salsa.
