Making the Perfect Margarita

Jack shows us how to make a perfect Margarita in this short video.  I like that he adds an egg white for increasing the frothiness in this tasty looking margarita.  The only thing I don’t like is the big old chuck of something (probably ice) that falls into the glass as he’s pouring the drink.

Margarita Ingredients

Jack starts with a blender half-full of ice, then adds the following ingredients to his Perfect Margarita:

  • 6 oz. Frozen Limeade
  • 1 egg white
  • 6 oz. Tequila
  • 2 oz. Triple Sec
  • 1 tbsp Karo Syrup

Now That's One Good Margarita!

Put the cover on the blender and blend on high speed until the Margarita is as smooth as you like.  Prepare a Margarita glass by running a lime wedge around the rim, and then dipping the rim into salt.  Pour in the Margarita, and enjoy!

Margarita Tools

On secret to a great Margarita is do have a blender that can handle the ice well.  One way around this is to use crushed ice, if your refrigerator has a built in ice crusher.  Another is to crush the ice by placing it into a plastic bag and then hammering it with a rolling pin.  But the easiest way is to buy a good quality blender to handle the ice .

Here’s a blender that should stand up to it:


If you noticed, Jack was using a quality Margarita glass.  Here’s one that is just the right size:


And finally, Jack used a special Margarita salt and rimmer.  I’m not sure exactly what he used, but here’s what I’d recommend:



Of course, if money is tight, you can always rim a table glass in table salt.  But it’s always nice to have all the Margarita fixings!

    Hey pal I guess you’ve had a desk job all your life and never were very handy with your hands,So here’s the thing about separating eggs. Just crack the egg in two and pour the yolk into the empty half of the shell and watch the whites just run off the sides. No need for the dramatic glass bowl scene.

    A new twist on an old favorite. Never had one that way, but I’m going to give it a whirl. Sounds better than a typical ‘frozen’ margarita. Thank for sharing gillespie! 🙂
