There’s really no such thing as a Perfect Margarita Recipe but this one comes pretty close. It comes from our CEO Terry, a big fan of margaritas. Perfect for the weekend, camping, dinner, and whenever water starts to taste gross. Cheers and enjoy responsibly!

Margarita Recipe

Created by Gear Coop CEO Terry Lee


Makes 2 servings

4 oz 100% Agave Tequila Silver or Reposado (Herradura is a favorite)

4 oz hand pressed Lime Juice

1 oz Cointreau

0.5 oz Agave Nectar



Wash the limes and hand press the lime juice using a citrus press.  The citrus press is best because it extracts the flavors and oils from the peel.  Even better is to let the lime juice sit for four hours after being pressed.  This mellows out the acidity, but I can never wait that long!

Salt the glasses by running a cut lime around the rim and dipping in course ground salt.  Mix all the ingredients, and serve with a full glass of ice.

For a little spice add little Sriracha and garnish with basil.

Party on and stay safe out there!
